KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (WBTV) - Kannapolis City Schools are reversing their decision and making masks required for students, staff and visitors in the schools.

The Kannapolis City Board of Education voted during their meeting Monday to require masks indoors for all students, staff and visitors starting on Tuesday, August 10.

School officials say the reasoning is because of the “changing COVID data in our community and quarantine guidance.”

Initially, the district said masks would not be required except for on school buses.

Additionally, Kannapolis City Schools says they will have limited remote learning opportunities available to those who have approved medical documentation.
