GOP governor 'abruptly canceled' PreK-12 mask rules -- but school districts quickly rejected it: report
School districts in Arizona rushed react on Monday after the state's Republican governor lifted a school mask mandate.
"Gov. Doug Ducey lifted his executive order on Monday that mandated masks to be worn on Arizona school campuses," KPNX-TV reported Monday. "School districts still have the authority to have mask requirements in their area."
The station's Brahm Resnik began tracking the response from school districts.
Here is the thread he posted to Twitter:

Former President Donald Trump on Monday praised his relationship with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin.
The statements came after Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was transferred to a prison hospital and the Pentagon warned about Russia's troop build-up along the border with Ukraine.
Fox News personality Sean Hannity asked Trump what he would do differently if he were to run again in 2024 and win.
Trump did not lay out a vision for the future and instead complained about investigations into his ties with Russia.
Trump recounted that his 2016 campaign aides repeatedly asked him about his ties to Russia, but denied there was relationship.
"Getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing," Trump argued.
"I got along great with President Putin, I liked him, he liked me," he said. "That's a good thing, not a bad thing."
