Roane County School Board votes down Mandatory Masks in school

At tonight’s Roane County School Board Meeting, a motion was made by Mike “Brillo” Miller and seconded by Larry Brackett to make face coverings mandatory. That motion failed by a 5-4 vote, thus keeping the original wording that masks are recommended, but not required.

VOTES AGAINST: Jackson, Wright, Cox, Jago and King.

Langley was not present.
