“To the schools, you teach science in your classroom, you should have to consider it when making decisions,” Beshear said at a briefing Thursday. Beshear urged every superintendent and school board “to do the right thing, just make the right decision” to require face masks indoors at schools.
“We have to continue to fight this battle until it’s done,” said Beshear. The governor stressed that all state employees are still required to wear face masks at work.
“It’s going to spread through unvaccinated workplaces and classrooms, resulting in a loss of productivity, where parents and caregivers cannot go to work due to long quarantines,” the governor said. “I’m not currently considering reinstating the mask mandate, we will watch what’s happening and again, it’s on the table, if it’s needed.”
Beshear also emphasized the dangerous spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant. Some more context: Beshear said the state is seeing an “exploding number of cases in summer camps “where, unlike schools, “you’re not putting…unvaccinated kids, without masks, in a poorly ventilated room, for hours at a time.”
