Masks in Durham schools recommended, no longer required starting Monday – WRAL News

The upcoming week marks a big change for students in the Durham Public School system.

Starting Monday, face masks will still be recommended, but no longer required at the school district.

At a March school board meeting, parents demanded the district’s mask mandate end immediately.

There was a proposal to make masks optional after spring break. It would have been April 4, but school board leaders decided to leave the mandate in for one more week.

Durham was one of the last school districts in central North Carolina with a mask mandate in place. Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools required indoor masking until April 4.

As of Monday, central North Carolina will no longer have any school districts with a mask mandate.
