   This afternoon, the Montgomery County Public Schools Board of Education voted unanimously to lift the indoor mask mandate in schools, which also extends to MCPS transportation. Effective immediately, masks are optional for students and staff. The county created a document offering guidance and information to help everyone decide whether or not to wear a mask.

The document states in part that “mask-wearing in MCPS will become optional indoors, outside and on school buses. Anyone who chooses to wear a mask may continue to do so, and your child may request a mask from their school if they want one.”

   More information will be available as the story develops.
