Two more Iola schools are now requiring students and staff to wear face masks because of a high number of COVID-19 infections.

On Wednesday, Iola High School and Lincoln Elementary School reached the 4% threshold that would trigger an automatic mask mandate, starting today and running for at least two weeks until infections reach 2% or fewer. 

Iola Middle School currently is under a mask mandate.
