Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nationalreview.com: “Illinois School Board Adjourns Meeting amid Fierce Debate Over Masking | National Review”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Members of an Illinois school board voted unanimously on Monday night to adjourn a meeting of the board until a later date after a community member refused to wear a mask during a heated public-comment portion of the meeting. 

More than a dozen community members spoke out at the Lake Forest School District 115 meeting on Monday night, urging the school to go against Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker’s school mask mandate.

After one woman stood up to speak out against the mandate and ignored the board president’s request to wear a mask, the board unanimously voted to take a short recess. The board voted to take the recess and left the room as the woman continued speaking.

As the board exited the room, other attendees also defiantly ripped their masks off. (Public comments in the video below start at the 1:07:07 timestamp.)

When the board returned minutes later, the room had largely cleared out. Several more people spoke before another attendee began to address the board and similarly refused to wear a mask, leading the board to unanimously vote to reconvene the meeting later this week.
