Kansas City Opts to Force School Children to Mask Up


Kansas City, Missouri, is reinstating its mask mandate for children in K-12 schools following a city council vote approving the measure.

Council members on Thursday overwhelmingly voted to reinstate a mask requirement in schools, which will begin next week and last until February 3, 2022.

“When the school mask rule expired over one month ago, we found ourselves in a different trajectory as it relates to case numbers,” Mayor Quinton Lucas, who sponsored the move, said. He also warned that schools “may need to move back to virtual learning if mitigation strategies are not pursued,” which he said is something “none of us wish to see.”
