ERIC SCHMITT, Senator for Missouri

WASHINGTON — Senator Schmitt released the following statement on the City of St. Louis implementing a mask mandate on its employees:

“Here we go again, the City of St. Louis is imposing masks on its employees. This is yet another attempt by the city to enforce its tyrannical mask mandates, this time on its own employees. Further, masks have been proven to be ineffective. Individuals have a right to make their own decisions when it comes to wearing masks – I fought these ridiculous mandates when I was Missouri’s Attorney General, and I will continue to do everything in my power to fight COVID tyranny,” said Senator Eric Schmitt.
