TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - The Washington Local school board voted unanimously Wednesday to mandate masks for students in kindergarten through sixth grade, and Ottawa Hills announced a similar strategy for combatting COVID on Thursday.

Masks will be required when those students are indoors. While there will not be a requirement, masks are highly recommended for 7th-12th graders.

All bus riders will be required to wear masks as well.

District leaders said that since the younger kids don’t have the option to get vaccinated they needed another layer of protection.
