OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska’s largest public school district will require students to wear masks indoors when they return to classrooms next week.
The Omaha Public Schools board voted 8-1 Monday to require all people to wear masks indoors at school, effective Tuesday.
The Omaha World-Herald reports that the resolution made note of recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommending universal masking for all teachers staff, students and visitors to K-12 schools in an effort to fight the growing spread of COVID-19 cases.
The Omaha district joins a growing number of Nebraska school districts requiring face mask when school starts this fall.
