The Murfreesboro City School Board has voted to require face masks in its schools for the time being.
The board voted Tuesday (8-25-21) night to begin the mandate Thursday and continue it through September 29th. The decision was made due to the rise in COVID-19 in the schools.
City schools, through social media, said, "Based on the rapidly rising cases we are seeing in our schools, we will move to a mask requirement when indoors and social distancing cannot be maintained. This temporary requirement will be observed from Thursday, August 26 through Wednesday, September 29. This decision was voted on by our school board with the support of our MCS leadership team during Tuesday night’s board meeting. Additional details will be added to the school websites and will be emailed to MCS parents by noon tomorrow, Wednesday, August 25."
