Montgomery County Board of Education drops mask mandate for schools

March 9, 2022

The Montgomery County Public Schools Board of Education voted unanimously Tuesday to drop the district’s mask mandate effective immediately for the school system of roughly 160,000 students. “This board would like to remind our community that the decision to wear or remove a mask is an individual and very personal one,” Montgomery County Board of Education President Brenda Wolff said ahead of the vote. Wolff called for community members to treat with respect teachers, staffers and students who may choose to continue to wear a mask.
