KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Jackson County Executive Frank White, Jr. has issued the following statement in response to today’s ruling involving a lawsuit filed by the Blue Springs School District: “We respect and appreciate the Court’s denial of the Blue Springs School District’s request for temporary restraining order. While we are pleased with the outcome, it is important to remember that today’s hearing did not come without costs. The school district’s decision to sue the County’s health department meant that a considerable amount of time, energy and taxpayer dollars had to be diverted from addressing the COVID-19 pandemic in Jackson County. We are hopeful that today’s ruling will put an end to this issue and our public health professionals can get back to focusing on keeping our community safe and healthy.”
