Connecticut Lawmakers Extend Statewide School Mask Mandate

HARTFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) -- Students in Connecticut schools will keep their masks on for now.

House lawmakers voted to extend all of the governor's executive orders, including the statewide school mask mandate.

It will remain in place until Feb. 28, and then individual districts in cities and towns will get to decide.

If COVID cases spike again, the state Department of Public Health could keep masks in place until the end of the school year on June 30.
