WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (WMC) - The West Memphis School District announced Tuesday of changes made to their school mask policy.

The district says the school board has voted to move to an optional mask wearing policy but says it is still highly recommended to wear one.

The board says COVID-19 cases have decreased over the last month which resulted in this decision.

The school district says they will continue to monitor COVID-19 data and adhere to state guidance from the Arkansas Department of Health and the Division of Secondary and Elementary Education.
