Concerns raised about open meetings when masks aren’t used

Is a public meeting really open to the public if attendees are risking the health of other attendees by not wearing masks?

It’s an issue raised by the Wisconsin Newspaper Association.

The article cited reports of village board in which mask mandates are not being followed at public meetings. Wisconsin FOIC President Bill Lueders said in the article that the those not adhering to the mask mandate or providing attendance were breaking open meetings law.
