Parents Press School Board To Require Masking

Fairbanks North Star Borough School District

Fairbanks North Star Borough schools returned to classrooms today (Weds) for the fall semester without a masking requirement, despite rising Covid 19 case counts. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports the school board heard a lot of testimony in favor of a mask mandate but did not take action.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
