Stokes County Schools Require Masks for 2 Weeks, Become Final School System in Piedmont Triad to Require Masks


STOKES COUNTY, North Carolina (WGHP) – Schools in Stokes County made masks mandatory on Tuesday, according to a statement from school officials.

Starting Wednesday, September 1, masks will be required in all Stokes County school buildings, buses and vans when occupied by students.

The decision will be reassessed on Friday, September 17 and every two weeks thereafter.

In the first five and a half days of school, schools in Stokes County had 101 close school-related contacts placed under quarantine for not wearing masks or not being vaccinated.

The data and numbers have changed day by day, and many school districts have set and then changed their mask mandates later.
