IRSD to vote on mask mandate Monday

The Indian River School board is set to vote on an end to mask mandate on Monday, February 28th at its public meeting.

The meeting will be held at Sussex Central High School at 7:00 p.m. with public comments prior to the vote.

The district would be the second in Sussex or Kent County to decide on whether or not to leave masking at the discretion of parents. The Milford School Board voted on Wednesday to go mask choice by a 6-1 vote. The rule will go into effect once Governor John Carney’s mask mandate is set to expire at the end of March, or sooner.

Cape Henlopen is set to vote on its own local regulation in March.
