Some Springfield School Board Members Push for Re-instating Mask Mandate

Some members of the Springfield School Board are pushing for a mask mandate to be temporarily re-instated for students in the district.

Three members advocated for the mandate to return as the emergence of the Omicron variant has caused the district to temporarily close all schools.

A mask mandate was in place throughout the district since the beginning of the school year, but was dropped in December after a Jefferson City judge ruled on a lawsuit filed by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt.

A mask mandate is in effect through at least February 4th.
