Watauga BOE Reverses Its Masking Policy for Public Schools


Yesterday, the Watauga County Board of Education reversed its 3-2 vote on July 26 to make masking in public schools optional, voting unanimously for a mask mandate for all students and staff, starting immediately.

Congresswoman Virginia Foxx did not show up to lecture the board that they were taking away the freedoms of Americans, nor was there a storm cloud of angry anti-masking parents in attendance to yell and shut down the meeting -- unlike, in other words, the scene at the Buncombe County Board of Education, which voted a similar policy and which drew the in-person fulminations of Congressman Madison Cawthorn.
