No one knows if kids in Illinois schools will be required to wear masks when they return to school this fall. The Illinois State Board of Education this week told local schools they are waiting on guidance from the CDC. Local schools say they need to know the rules on masks, social distancing, and cleaning protocols before they make plans for a return to school. Many smaller, downstate school districts want to be able to decide their own mask policies.
