(Viburnum)  The Viburnum School Board of Education has put a mask mandate in place for the district.

According to the school’s website, new rules say students in all grades need to wear masks when social distancing can not be achieved.

This is due to a large number of positive Covid-19 cases in the school and in the Viburnum area.

This new rule, which did not specify if teachers and administrators should also wear masks, was put in place at the start of this week at the Viburnum School District.
