Governer Baker announced yesterday the state will life its mask mandate for schools citing vaccination rates and student’s mental health as reasons. “Our kids have had to put up with a lot of disruption, a lot of time alone, and has suffered a real learning loss over the past two years. There’s no debating those points, no matter where you stand,” Baker said. “From free and convenient testing to highly effective vaccines and breakthrough treatments, everyone now has the tools and the knowledge to stay safe with respect to COVID.” The date: Feb. 28th.
