More Kentucky school districts extending mask requirements

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — School boards in more than three-fourths of Kentucky’s school districts have extended mask requirements. The decisions come as one district is mourning the coronavirus-related death of a teacher. The Caverna Independent School District said Wednesday that math teacher Amanda Nutt died of complications from COVID-19. So far, 130 of the state’s 171 public school districts have opted to continue requiring masks in schools. That’s according to the Kentucky School Boards Association. Kentucky’s legislature last week empowered school boards with setting masking policies in their districts. Kentucky reported 49 more virus-related deaths and nearly 5,400 new virus cases on Wednesday.
