Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signs law banning mandatory mask mandates in schools for students and staff

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a law into effect on Thursday morning which prevents students and staff from being forced to wear masks while in schools, following updated mask guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

While the law signed by Reynolds states that employees and students can no longer be required by school board officials or superintendents to wear any type of mask or facial covering while on school property, exceptions will be made for “an extracurricular or instructional purpose,” the Des Moines Register reported.
