Washington Post: Kentucky schools overwhelmingly keep mask mandates after Republicans scrapped state requirement

Washington Post: Kentucky schools overwhelmingly keep mask mandates after Republicans scrapped state requirement. “Mark Dougherty, an infectious-disease physician in Lexington, Ky., sees the toll the state’s most severe coronavirus wave is inflicting on communities with the school year back in session: The teacher placed on a ventilator, the bus driver nearing intubation, the critically ill custodian. He feared their cases would be the ‘tip of the iceberg’ after the mostly Republican state legislature during a special session earlier this month repealed a statewide school mask mandate unilaterally put in place by the Democratic governor. But most Kentucky school districts made a different choice: They kept mask mandates in place.”
