Utah School District to Recommend – but Not Require – Masks

MORGAN, Utah — A school district in Utah has announced it is going against a continuing public health order and no longer requiring facial coverings in K-12 schools.

The Standard-Examiner reported that the Morgan School District school board voted Tuesday to change its mask policy to a recommendation that students and faculty wear masks, instead of a requirement. It is one of at least seven school districts in Utah to scale back mask requirements.

The decision came after several residents and students criticized the mandate during public comment. Some educators have argued to keep the mandate because many people rely on others to wear them to stay safe.
