Hermon Schools to require masks
The school had voted against masks one week prior.
HERMON, Maine (WABI) - Masks will now be required for students at Hermon schools for at least the first week of classes.
This decision comes after the School Committee voted against a mandate last week.
According to the Bangor Daily News, the Hermon School Committee voted 3-0 in an emergency meeting Monday night to give the district’s superintendent discretion to respond to local COVID-19 conditions.
The Hermon School Department says this will give them more time as they work to set up pool testing.
