Arizona Gov. Ducey Rescinds Order Requiring Face Masks in Schools

By Catherine Smith

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey on Monday rescinded part of an executive order that required face masks be worn inside K-12 schools, as more residents receive the COVID-19 vaccine, Fox News reports.

Gov. Ducey’s announcement allows K-12 school districts and charter schools to decide if students should be required to wear masks or not on campus, as he noted 4.5 million vaccine doses had been administered across the state.

“Teachers, families and students have acted responsibly to mitigate the spread of the virus and protect one another, and our school leaders are ready to decide if masks should be required on their campuses,” Ducey said in a statement. “We will continue to work with public health professionals and Arizona’s schools as more students return to the classroom and our state moves forward.”

 

Other states have begun to ease statewide restrictions throughout recent weeks, including Nevada where state officials intend to have all counties opened at 100% capacity by June, according to the report.

Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi began easing their restrictions to varying degrees earlier this year.

Ducey also issued an executive order barring any local government or state agency from requiring vaccine passports to enter government property.
