MADISON — From Savannah to San Francisco, school districts across the nation have ditched their mask mandates.
But not Wisconsin’s liberal citadel.
Madison Metropolitan School District has extended its mask mandate until at least early need month. District officials said they were advised by their team of medical advisors, made up of University of Wisconsin-Madison professors, to keep the order in place. MMSD notified parents that they were extending the mask mandate until at least May 6, “in the interest of its students and staff.”
After briefly going mask-optional, Milwaukee Public Schools is reinstating its mandate.
“The decision was made after determining a significant transmission of the virus within the city of Milwaukee,” the district announced on its website.
