(CNN)Atlanta Public Schools, one of the nation's first districts to begin its school year next month, will require masks for all students and teachers in school and on buses, the district announced Thursday.

The universal mask wearing protocol will start as the new school year begins on August 5, according to the announcement.

Texas and Iowa are prohibiting public schools from requiring masks, while at least six states are requiring all K-12 students to wear masks in school: Connecticut, Hawaii, New Mexico, New York, Virginia and Washington.

In Georgia, Gov. Kemp signed an executive order effective May 31 that prevents schools from using the state's public health emergency order as a basis for mask mandates, but does not prohibit them from requiring masks.

DeKalb County and Clayton County school districts, both in the Atlanta area, have announced that they will require masks when the school year begins in early August.
