The Nassau County School Board is pictured meeting Tuesday.

Following calls for masks in schools at a previous school district meeting, the Nassau County School Board on Tuesday held a special meeting to discuss the hot button topic and get feedback from the community.

After more than two hours of public comment from those for and against masks in schools, the Board unanimously voted in favor an opt-out measure, according to WJCT News partner News4Jax.
