State Board of Education votes to lift mask mandate in schools with restrictions

December 7th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

In a 12-1 decision, the State Board of Education voted to allow individual school systems to lift mask mandate under certain conditions. Those conditions are either an individual school has at least 80% of its students and staff fully vaccinated, a school's home county has 80% of residents fully vaccinated, or a school's home county's transmission rate falls to moderate or low for at least 14 days.

Regulation would go to the ALER committee for final approval.
