Gov. Brian Kemp plans to introduce legislation about masks in schools
ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - It appears that Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp plans to introduce legislation that would allow parents to decide whether or not their children wear masks to school.
Kemp posted a tweet on Wednesday afternoon that accuses some school systems of ignoring the science, parents’ concerns and wellbeing of students.
Kemp has fought against mask and vaccine mandates and lockdowns since the beginning of the pandemic.
Several states are lifting their mask mandates for students in schools, including New Jersey, Oregon, Connecticut, Delaware and Massachusetts.
