Brookfield First Selectman responds to being unmasked in school buildings

A local elected official is defending her decision to not wear a facemask in school building while attending Parks and Rec basketball games.  The Newstimes reports that Brookfield First Selectman Tara Carr, a Republican who was elected in November, attended 6 games at the High School, Whisconier Middle School and Huckleberry Hill Elementary School.  A gubernatorial executive order requires masks in schools and certain other facilities.  Carr says the mandates are not enforceable, noting that several others were not wearing masks, adding that no one asked them to put masks on.  The games were not school-sponsored events, despite being held in the schools, so no school employees were there to enforce the mandate.  It would have been up to Parks and Rec staff, town employees, to enforce the mandate.
