School boards across Kentucky have voted overwhelmingly in favor of continuing mask requirements in schools as coronavirus infections continue to mount.

The count shows 165 of the state’s 171 public school districts extended universal masking in schools. The Kentucky School Boards Association tracked the decisions. It says six districts initially opted to make mask-wearing optional.

The Gallatin County district reversed course late Friday to require masks for the next two weeks.

The legislature shifted masking decisions to local school leaders. A statewide mask mandate approved by the state school board ended Friday.
