Public school students in Lee County will now be required to wear masks at school with no option to opt out, except for a medical exemption with a doctor’s note.

The school board previously called a special meeting for Monday at 5 p.m. to address mask rules.

Ahead of that meeting Superintendent Ken Savage enacted the mandate to require masks for all students and teachers with no opt-out, determining that a board vote was not applicable in this situation, similar to the previous school year.
