Utah anti-mask protesters who derailed school board meeting may face charges, district says

The chaotic scenes captured on video during Tuesday’s Granite School District Board of Education meeting come as Utah has issued a public health order still requiring masks to be worn inside all of its K-12 schools through June 15 or the end of the school year – whichever is sooner. Elsewhere, the state’s coronavirus restrictions and mask mandates have been lifted. 

“One size does not fit all and adults who have higher risks should not project their fears or expect the youth to carry the burden of those fears,” Monica Wilbur, a woman who spoke against the school mask mandate during the public comments section of the meeting, is heard saying, drawing raucous applause from others in attendance.
