Updated to add video: Lawrence police were investigating Thursday after a reported altercation involving signs near an elementary school, where an anti-mask protester and pro-mask counter-protesters have been stationed often since school began last month.
A protester has added his anti-mask message to the morning routine at Sunset Hill Elementary School, leading some in the Lawrence community to express concerns for safety.
A new mask mandate for kids ages 2-11 is now in effect in Douglas County, despite public commenters drawing comparisons to the Holocaust and threatening to unenroll their kids from public schools Wednesday night.
