FRANKFORT, Ky. (FOX 56) – Gov. Andy Beshear has canceled his executive order requiring students to wear masks in schools.

According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, the governor did not immediately comment on the action or whether a state Board of Education emergency regulation requiring a mask mandate for students for this school year will remain in effect.

The cancellation of the executive order comes after the Kentucky Supreme Court’s ruling on Saturday that new laws limiting the governor’s executive powers will stand and ordered a lower court to dissolve the injunction that stopped them from going into effect.

The Kentucky Board of Education has implemented its own emergency regulation requiring masks be worn in Kentucky public schools.
