Reykdal to discuss next steps for masking requirements in WA schools Thursday
OLYMPIA, Wash. – Washington State Superintendent Chris Reykdal will discuss the next steps for masking requirements in schools on Thursday.
He will join Governor Jay Inslee for a joint news conference at 2 p.m.
Earlier this month, Reykdal said he was in support of making masks optional in school, though no action has been taken to lift the requirement at this point.
A handful of school district boards have voted to make masks optional in recent days, directly defying the statewide mandate.
4 News Now will stream Reykdal’s news conference online and on KXLY+.
