School Board Meeting Over Mask Mandate Gets Physical
CHASKA (AP) -- Tensions at a suburban Twin Cities school board meeting over a new mask mandate escalated to a physical scuffle.
The Eastern Carver County Schools announced Monday that all students would need to wear a mask through at least the middle of next month because of a rise in coronavirus cases.
At a meeting Monday night in Carver, speakers lined up to talk about their support or opposition to the mandate.
A couple of men got physical over what appeared to be a disagreement about someone taking a photo.
Several other men intervened to separate the two and police were summoned.
