FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Two more Allen County school district have lifted mask requirements on district wide transportation vehicles.

At Monday Night’s board meeting within Northwest Allen County Schools, the decision was approved by the Board of School Trustees to immediately end the mask requirement on school buses and any vehicles within the district. This following the latest guidelines from the CDC which allows for districts to make their own decisions in regards to masks on school buses and vans. The board did extend the mask-optional procedure to buses and activity vehicles so that the procedure would be consistent for students, faculty, and staff throughout the day.

Fort Wayne Community Schools announced Monday that a mask requirement on buses would be lifted March 1. Masks are now optional for students and adults on all FWCS buses.
