Putnam County Executive: Mask mandate court rulings cause confusion in schools

An appeals judge has restored New York's mask mandate. Tuesday's ruling comes a day after a lower court judge ruled that Gov. Kathy Hochul's administration lacked the constitutional authority to order people to wear face coverings.  Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell said the Monday ruling caused confusion and disarray in school districts throughout the region, leaving children, in some cases, to bear the brunt of what she called a misguided state policy.  All of the districts in Putnam County notified parents that the mask rule is still in place.  But Odell says she heard reports of children as young as 6 years old being forced to socially distance in class because their parents sent them to school without a mask.
