How Do Students Feel about the Mask Mandate?

Currently, Lincoln is in the orange zone. The mask mandate was put into place due to the rising cases from the Delta variant. As of August 26, a mask mandate was enforced requiring everyone over the age of 2 to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status. So, how do students feel about it?

Regardless of political opinion wearing masks has proven to be effective in stopping the spread of Covid-19 and more recently, the Delta variant. According to a recent poll of Irving students, a majority of students are in support of wearing masks, leaving 27.7% not in support and 21% undecided.
