An automatic stay putting on hold the end to Pennsylvania’s schoolwide mask mandate is set to be lifted Dec. 4, under an order issued Tuesday by Judge Christine Fizzano Cannon of the Commonwealth Court.

Fizzano Cannon granted the application filed by a group of parents and school districts, led by Pennsylvania Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman, R-Centre, to terminate the automatic supersedeas placed on the Commonwealth Court’s Nov. 10 decision in Corman v. Acting Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
