As the school year wraps up across the country, you may be wondering what you can expect in the remaining weeks when it comes to wearing masks. Well, it depends on where you live.

In Texas, Gov. Greg Abbott has ordered all public school districts to no longer require masks.

After June 4, Abbott said students, teachers, parents or visitors will not be required to wear a mask on campus.

The latest CDC guidance recommends kids wear masks for the rest of the school year.

Abbott's executive order also stops local governments in Texas from requiring face masks starting on Friday.
