Optional masking will be disruptive to Carroll County schools; COVID commentary short sighted

August 23, 2021

I am deeply disappointed in the Carroll County school board’s reaction to the issue of masking in our schools. Schools in Florida recently opened without requiring masks and promptly had to quarantine thousands of students due to COVID-19 exposures. How can we keep it from happening here? Require everyone inside the schools to wear masks. Our county health officer Ed Singer gave an informative presentation to the school board on Aug. 11 detailing the pros and cons of different masking situations.
