RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper on Thursday decided to reverse course from guidance he issued last week and will now urge all K-12 public school students and staff to be masked, even if they have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19.

The Democratic governor and the state's top public health official, Dr. Mandy Cohen, pinned much blame on unvaccinated people and renewed calls for them to get the shot.

"Our trends have turned sharply in the wrong direction," Cooper said at a news conference. "Unvaccinated people are driving this resurgence and getting themselves and other people sick."
