WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – The New Hanover County Board of Education will meet for a regular board meeting Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.
Per the agenda, board members will take a look at the NHCS COVID dashboard alongside the New Hanover County community dashboard. A vote will be taken on whether or not masks are required in schools. Previously, the board decided in a 4-3 vote on Dec. 7, 2021 that masks would not be required for students. Board members Stefanie Adams, Judy Justice and Stephanie Walker cast the dissenting votes.
Hugh McManus, who voted for making masks optional, mentioned in the December meeting that the board of education had tied themselves to the New Hanover County Health and Human Services (NHCHHS). However, the NHC Health and Human Services Board won’t be meeting until Jan. 18, and there have been no changes to the mask policy at the time of writing.
