NEW YORK (PIX11) — An order issued by a Nassau County judge Monday declared Gov. Kathy Hochul’s mask mandate unconstitutional, and some schools were quick to do away with requirements in the wake of the decision.

The New York State Education Department said school districts around the state told schools to ignore the Long Island judge’s ruling, but many did not comply.

However, the mask mandate was reinstated Tuesday afternoon after an appeals court judge granted a stay, temporarily blocking the ruling that struck down the mandate.

“As Governor, my top priority is protecting the people of this state. These measures are critical tools to prevent the spread of COVID-19, make schools and businesses safe, and save lives,” Hochul said.

Below is a list of Long Island school districts and where they stood on mandatory masking after Monday’s initial ruling. Some decisions might be affected by the stay granted Tuesday:
