Yesterday, a mask mandate was introduced to Kingsford and Iron River schools.
Now, parents statewide are calling for the same mandate in all Michigan schools.
On September 15, a group of parents called on the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) to require masks in all K-12 schools, even if vaccinated.
The Michigan Parents Alliance for Safe Schools launched a petition for a statewide mask mandate, as only 60% of Michigan schools currently require masks.
A number of news organizations, including the Mining Journal in Marquette, have editorialized in support of the mandate.
