WATERLOO, Iowa (KCRG) - Waterloo schools announced on Thursday that masks will be optional after Gov. Reynolds signed a bill prohibiting mask mandates by schools.

The change is effective starting Thursday.

The Cedar Rapid Community School District also announced it plans to abide by the new law.

However, federal guidelines still require masks to be worn on school busses.
