On Thursday, Commissioner for the Kentucky Department for Public Health Dr. Steven Stack and Gov. Andy Beshear recommended that teachers, staff and students wear masks when they return to school next month.
Stack said the new recommendations mirror the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance.
“Everyone in the K-12 setting in indoor spaces should wear a mask period,” he said. “If you are in the school setting, in a K-12 setting and you are indoors, you should all wear a mask.”
