“I've said all along we're going to give our schools about two weeks' notice, that's what we've done throughout this pandemic, give people notice so they can plan. So, that'd be Wednesday or Thursday this week,” he said.
The governor says he thinks cities and towns are doing well implementing their own indoor mask mandates when warranted. He reiterated if you are unvaccinated, you must wear a mask indoors in public.
