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.
