Students In Ohio’s K-12 Schools Must Wear Masks


Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine on Tuesday added another statewide health order requiring all children in grades K-12 to wear masks while in school, with certain exceptions.

“We are limited in the ways that we can protect people of the state of Ohio, protect our kids, protect the adults,” he said. “The other way is not to go back to school at all, and some schools are making that choice.”

No statewide decision has been made on high school contact sports, with DeWine saying officials want to get closer to the date of competitions before making a ruling.
