Parents Calling For Stricter COVID Mitigation In BPS

(Bismarck, ND) -- A group of parents is calling for stricter COVID mitigation efforts in Bismarck Public Schools.  

The group sent a letter to the Bismarck Board of Health saying CDC guidelines should be followed and masks should be required rather than recommended in schools. The Board of Health will meet today to discuss the letter.

Bismarck School Board President Jon Lee says it would be unfair to "discriminate" against public school kids by requiring them to wear masks when private school kids and community members aren't required to wear one.
