Footage going viral online shows Manchester High School students in Manchester, Michigan forcing their way onto campus Tuesday in protest of a new “mask mandate” implemented by the Washtenaw County Health Department.
In the video, a police officer can be heard talking to parents standing outside the school.
“If you don’t want to go in, you don’t have to,” the officer said. “I’m not going to force anybody, I’m not putting masks on anybody, that’s not my job.”
The parent filming responded, “So, they can go in without the mask?”
“This is a county health department order and a policy of the school that if… anybody that’s gonna go in, they’ve got to have a mask on,” the officer explained.
