CLAYTON, Mo. – The resolution supporting a mask mandate failed 5-2 at Tuesday night’s St. Louis County Council meeting.
The county judge is still asking for lawmakers to come to a compromise in the coming days.
Throughout the meeting, there was a lot of talk about civil liberties and disinformation. Many of those who spoke Tuesday night are strongly against a mandate of any kind.
A couple of people did support it.
The judge wants to hear some solutions from Missouri Attorney General Schmitt and St. Louis County Executive Dr. Sam Page Wednesday morning.
