WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Another Kansas school district could put a mask mandate in effect.

The Goddard Board of Education voted 7-0 for masks to be mandated for K-6 students including visitors and teachers.

Starting Tuesday, Sept. 7 everyone inside Wellington Public Schools must wear a mask. The district held a special meeting Wednesday night. Last week, Wellington closed schools until Sept. 7 due to a rise in COVID-19 cases. The board will discuss COVID issues at each school at its next meeting.
