Several parents are protesting the mask mandate in Muscatine schools, which began on Monday, Sept. 20.

This morning, a group of parents gathered outside the Muscatine school board’s office to protest the board’s decision to require masks in public schools. The measure was approved at a special school board meeting last week, requiring students in pre-kindergarten through 6th grade to wear masks to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
