CROWN POINT — Anti-maskers scored a victory of sorts Tuesday when the Lake County Council declined to endorse the school mask mandate recommended by the county's health officer to try to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

The Democratic-controlled council voted 5-2 to reject the health order proposed by Dr. Chandana Vavilala that would have required masks be worn by all students, personnel and visitors inside every elementary, middle and high school in the county, including private and charter schools.
