On August 8, 2022, WLF filed an amicus brief urging the Eleventh Circuit to affirm a decision setting aside an order from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention requiring masks on public transportation. WLF’s brief argues that the Constitution’s structural protections do not disappear during emergencies. Because Congress has not given CDC the power to issue the mask mandate, the order violates separation-of-powers principles. The brief also explains why the order is arbitrary and capricious. Science has proven that mask mandates do not stop the spread of COVID-19.
