Board of Education to Address MCPS Mask Mandate at March 8 Meeting

February 26, 2022

It is anticipated that the Montgomery County Board of Education, at its March 8 business meeting, will vote to make masks optional in MCPS facilities. This action is based on the Maryland Joint Committee on Administrative, Executive, and Legislative Review (AELR) vote on Friday, Feb. 25 affirming the state Board of Education’s decision to rescind the emergency mask mandate for schools in Maryland.  This action, the decline in cases, updated guidance from the CDC and the lifting of the county indoor mask mandate indicate that MCPS can operate with optional masking.
