The Kentucky Democratic Party's Kenny Fogle posted this one.

With at least 11 school employee deaths from Covid so far in Kentucky, the deaths of 3 children, and growing numbers of cases of infected children daily, we are cautiously optimistic that the House version of the mirror education bills does not currently contain an amendment like the version in the Senate, filed by Sen. Matt Castlen, R-Owensboro, effectively banning local districts from the ability to require masks.

We are hopeful that legislators will continue to fine tune the bill with the safety of all children and school employees in mind.
