The Preston County Board of Education met on August 30, 2021, and issued a mask mandate through September 27, 2021, when the issue will be revisited. If all students are masked, CDC, state board, and local health department guidelines state that an exposed student would not have to be quarantined. This should help us keep students in school for now. https://youtu.be/TMe1nED-UUs
