The ruling comes as COVID-19 case counts and hospitalizations rise dramatically in Pennsylvania.
Without today’s ruling by the state Supreme Court, the mask mandate would have ended Saturday.
Masks are now only required for students and staff on school district transportation.
Whitehall-Coplay Superintendent Robert Steckel said they’re “staying the course” with their COVID-19 health and safety plan, but making adjustments for outside mandates such as the Wolf administration’s school masking requirement which went into effect on Sept. 7.
School districts across Pennsylvania are preparing to enforce a masking order handed down by Secretary of Health Dr. Alison Beam.
