COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A mask mandate is expected for two southern Colorado school districts in the near future.

During Wednesday’s Pueblo County Board of Health meeting, board members voted 4-1 to have the director of health write up the mandate for schools. This would impact D-60 and D-70 along with child care facilities. The director had mentioned he was against putting a mask mandate in schools. The director is expected to meet with superintendents to discuss implementation and specifics of the mandate.

D-60 tells 11 News they are ready to enforce the mandate as soon as it is issued. 11 News has a call out to D-70 and we’re waiting to hear back. An exact timeline is unclear, but the board expects the mandate to be in place within the next 30 days.
