Antigo - Masks will be mandatory at Antigo schools starting Monday.

The school board voted 5 to 4 at Tuesday's school board meeting to require masks. After two months of masking, the rule could be reviewed on December 22.

According to board member Dr. Noel Deep, in September 975 students in the district had to be quarantined because of COVID. He said that wearing masks will keep more kids in school.
