NACS Board Votes To Implement Temporary Mask Mandate Amid Rising Cases
The Northwest Allen County Schools board of trustees voted to temporarily reinstate the district’s mask mandate at Monday night’s meeting.
The resolution would require masks for all students and staff from September 1 until October 14.
The decision came following a significant number of students having to isolate or quarantine due to COVID-19 in the first few weeks of school.
The district faced criticism from a group of parents earlier this year over the continued mask mandates. The resolution passed with a 3-2 vote.
Children under the age of 12 are still ineligible for the COVID-19 vaccine and case numbers have continued to increase in Allen County over the past few weeks.
