Bristol Virginia school superintendent signals end of mask mandate
Bristol Virginia Superintendent of Schools Keith Perrigan has signaled for an end to mask mandates in city public schools as COVID cases in his system have been consistently between 0 and 3 in the past two weeks.
Bristol had 28 cases citywide as of Wednesday and two schools reported zero students or staff in quarantine or isolation.
Perrigan said he hopes this is the final chapter of the pandemic but the system supports any teacher, worker, or student who continues to wear a mask.
