Lincoln and Lancaster County's mask-wearing mandate is facing a possible challenge from Nebraska's top elected official.  Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts' office says the governor is considering all available legal options in challenging the mask order. A spokesperson for Ricketts says the governor encourages the use of masks in appropriate situations, but he disagrees with Lincoln Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird's public mask order, which runs until August 31st.
