The Douglas Unified School District has reinstated its face covering mandate.
Herald/Review Sports Editor and Douglas Reporter @Bruce Whetten reported that the resolution, which came from the DUSD’s attorney and was approved by the Douglas School Board 5-1 at a special meeting Aug. 18 went into effect Thursday, Aug. 19. It will remain in effect until Sept. 28, the day before Gov. Doug Ducey’s executive order prohibiting face coverings goes into effect.
Dr. Ed Gomez voted against the resolutions.
“Once the law kicks, in we’re going to follow the law,” Ana Samaniego, DUSD superintendent told the board.
