West Iron County Public Schools Vote Against Mask Mandate

An upper peninsula school district has voted to go against a health department mask mandate.

Last night, the West Iron County Public Schools Board of Education voted to defy a Dickinson–Iron District Health Department mask mandate.

The order requires students to wear masks in Dickinson and Iron counties.

At least 75% of attendees at the meeting voted by a show of hands to go against the mandate.

The next health board meeting will be held on September 29th at 10 AM in Dickinson County.
