A new statewide survey of likely Arizona voters has found there is widespread support for masks in schools.
The survey showed 59% are against a new state law going into effect Sept. 29 that prohibits mask mandates in schools. Another 57% said they believe masks should be required inside local government and school facilities.
“The data confirms the conversations that we have with parents as we’re teaching,” Marisol Garcia, vice president of the Arizona Education Association, told KTAR News 92.3 FM. “Everyone wants to keep their kids safe, and we want to use everything in our tool belt to do so.”
