The School Board voted 8-1 last night to support Superintendent Scott Ziegler’s decision to continue requiring masks in schools, defying the governor’s executive order.
John Beatty (Catoctin) opposed the motion.
Gov. Glenn Youngkin signed an executive order Saturday to make masks optional for students. The order is at odds with state law that requires school divisions follow CDC guidance to the greatest extent practicable.
Ziegler said he would make an announcement today with more information on mitigation strategies.
