“We want our body, our choice,” Kulbaba told a crowd gathered outside the Vancouver Art Gallery, according to the outlet. “This is all due to a virus that has spread [around] the world. It’s not called COVID, it’s called socialism and communism.”
Agroup of more than two dozen Ohio parents are suing the state’s health director over an imposed mask requirement at schools, arguing that the mandate infringes upon their religious beliefs and the ability to raise their children as they wish.
The complaint, filed last week in Putnam County Common Pleas Court, responds to Ohio Department of Health (ODH) Interim Director Lance Himes’ order signed August 13, which requires that face coverings be worn in K-12 educational settings in an effort to help mitigate the spread of coronavirus.
Himes’ order names several exemptions from the mandate, including students with a disability, mental health condition or medical condition, or if an “established sincerely held religious requirement” does not permit the use of a mask, according to the order.
