After a judge told a school district it couldn’t require masks for students without a quarantine order, the district reported fewer COVID-19 cases, but it has faced other consequences.
It comes as a member of the Illinois Legislature’s Joint Committee on Administrative Rules said there is further evidence the Illinois State Board of Education can’t revoke a public or private school’s recognition status for failing to follow the governor’s mask mandate.
Attorney Thomas DeVore said since securing a temporary restraining order enjoining the Hillsboro school district from mandating masks on children on Sept. 17, cases have gone down.
“I’m not saying that that’s conclusive, I’m just saying that that is information that suggests that masks on kids in this classroom is something that may not be necessary to prevent the spread,” DeVore said.
Before the TRO, numbers provided by Hillsboro schools show 22 cases in the first week of school. There were 11 cases the following week, then 13 and 11 in subsequent weeks.
In the first week without the mask requirement, after the TRO was issued, five positive cases were reported. Three cases were reported the second week. No staff members reported positive cases during that two-week timeframe.
While acknowledging cases are going down, Hillsboro Superintendent David Powell said there have been other consequences.
“When we were no longer requiring the masks, a lot of our students are not wearing masks, then the close contact tracing radius goes from three feet to six feet so we’re identifying a lot more kids as close contacts,” Powell said. “But also if both students aren’t masked, we lose the option to do the test-to-stay.”
The Test to Stay program allows a student who was in contact with a positive case to avoid a quarantine as long as they are asymptomatic. The student is then tested on days 1, 3, 5, and 7.
Powell said another consequence is some other schools aren’t willing to participate in extracurricular indoor activities with Hillsboro.
While Gov. J.B. Pritzker and ISBE have said they will take actions against schools for not following the mandates, Powell said he hasn’t heard back from ISBE on their recognition status. But other conversations have given him some indication.
“As long as the district is not requiring the masks in response to a court order that there wouldn’t be any sanctions placed against the district from the state board in regards to recognition, funding, any of those things,” Powell said.
But, ISBE Thursday listed four public schools districts as on probation. Hillsboro is not one of those.
There are eight nonpublic schools listed as non-recognized. Parkview Christian Academy, a private school, had its recognition instantly revoked for not having a mask mandate in place. But the school secured its recognition through the courts on Wednesday. ISBE lists that on the agency’s spreadsheet.
State Sen. Don DeWitte (R-St. Charles), said it is further evidence ISBE can’t enforce what agency officials think they can.
“We have said all along that this issue is not about masks, this issue is not about vaccinations, this issue is about overreach from the governor’s office, through ISBE,” DeWitte said.
DeWitte, a member of JCAR, said the judge in the Parkview case highlighted how public schools have due process when it comes to being sanctioned by ISBE, but private schools do not, and that’s wrong.
ISBE didn’t return messages seeking comment.
BREAKING: Airline CEOs Send King Biden a Letter Asking Him To Remove Useless Mask Mandates
On Wednesday, the CEOs of American Airlines, Delta Airlines, United Airlines, Southwest Airlines, and other major carriers sent a letter to Joe Biden urging him to end federal mask mandates on airplanes as well as international pre-departure testing requirements. Citing scientific data, the airlines implore Biden to lift the travel restrictions on airlines so the US travel and tourism sectors no longer needlessly struggle.
In the letter, the CEOs explain that they have followed all instructions regarding Covid-19 policies thus far, but request that now their companies are able to follow the scientific evidence and data that show we are no longer in a severe state of this pandemic.
The letter reads:
“Our industry has leaned into science at every turn. At the outset, we voluntarily implemented policies and procedures… to form a multi-layered approach to mitigate the risk and prioritize the wellbeing of passengers and employees.”
It then continues to argue that the situation, and scientific recommendations, have drastically changed and it is time to start recognizing these facts:
“However, much has changed since these measures were imposed and they no longer make sense in the current public health context… Given that we have entered a different phase of dealing with this virus, we strongly support your view that “COVID-19 need no longer control our lives.
Now is the time for the Administration to sunset federal transportation travel restrictions – including the international predeparture testing requirement and the federal mask mandate – that are no longer aligned with the realities of the current epidemiological environment.”
The CEOs are insisting in this letter that the Biden administration consider the negative impact the unnecessary federal mandates have on the US travel and tourism industries. They even quote Biden himself in saying that “Covid-19 need no longer control our lives”, pressing him to follow through on what he says.
While the US maintains all travel restrictions, the UK, EU, and Canada have all done away with the futile mandates. “The U.S. inconsistency with these practices creates a competitive disadvantage for U.S. travel and tourism by placing an additional cost and burden on travel to the U.S.,” the airlines argue.
The letter asserts that it “makes no sense that people are still required to wear masks on airplanes, yet are allowed to congregate in crowded restaurants, schools and at sporting events without masks.”
The airline CEOs even advocate for the well-being of their employees that are made to enforce these mandates on the aircraft, which has been impacting their personal wellness.
They emphasize that it is “critical to recognize that the burden of enforcing both the mask and predeparture testing requirements has fallen on our employees for two years now. This is not a function they are trained to perform and subjects them to daily challenges by frustrated customers. This in turn takes a toll on their own well-being.”
Finally, the letter also points out that those who still wish to wear masks for their own protection are more than welcome to do so, especially considering the “availability of high-quality masks”. In addition to the masking, airplanes also have “hospital-grade cabin air”, which is stressed in this letter.
Biden has not yet issued a response to this request.

HUGE! Rand Paul Pushes Bill Through To End Mask Mandate For Public Transportation With Bipartisan Support… You Won’t Believe Which RINO Voted Against it
In another step towards pushing back against Covid tyranny in the United States, a bill sponsored by Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) was passed with bipartisan support in the Senate that would get rid of mask mandates on public transportation.
The bill was supported by eight Senate Democrats and all but one Senate Republican. Senator Mitt Romney (R-Ut.) voted against lifting the mandates.
President Biden is likely to veto the bill as his administration plans to extend the mask mandate until April 18th when it will be reviewed.
Democratic Senator Tim Kaine, who was a leading advocate against the bill to repeal the mandate, said he opposed the bill because it would prevent the CDC from imposing future mandates if there was another upsurge in Covid-19.
The bill still will now move to the House for a vote, where other bills to repeal Covid restrictions have remained in limbo.
“The Senate on Tuesday voted to nix a requirement to wear masks on public transportation as the country rolls back coronavirus rules and restrictions.
Senators voted 57-40 on the resolution, which would reduce Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requirements that most people wear masks on public transportation, including trains, airplanes and buses.
Hassan, Kelly, Bennet and Cortez Masto are up for reelection in November. Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), who is not, was the only GOP senator to vote against the resolution.
Despite the win for Paul, the resolution is likely to hit a wall in the House. It would also need to overcome a likely veto by President Biden.
“We have it within our power today to ensure the American people that we are irreversibly going back to normal,” Paul said during a floor speech.”
