The Brevard County School Board approved a new policy requiring everyone who comes on to school property to wear a face covering. Previously the district had only said masks were “expected.”
Now students who come to school without one will be given one, and if they refuse to wear it, they’ will be disciplined.
There are several exceptions to this new mandatory mask policy in Brevard, though:
- If a doctor’s note says wearing a face covering will negatively impact your health
- When exercising
- For those who have trouble breathing while wearing a mask.
- Children from Pre-K to second grade will be encouraged, but not required, to wear one.
