LUBBOCK, Texas– On Thursday, the Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously to accept Superintendent Kathy Rollo’s motion to make masks optional for upcoming graduations, summer programs and fall classes.
However, the policy is still subject to any rules the venue might have. So, it’s possible that masks might be required depending on where an event is held.
Later in the day, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention eased indoor mask-wearing guidance for fully vaccinated people, according to an article by the Associated Press.
However, new guidance still calls for wearing masks in crowded indoor settings like buses, planes, hospitals, prisons and homeless shelters, but could ease restrictions for reopening workplaces and schools.
