Duval County Public School students are no longer under a strict mask mandate. After nearly two months in effect, the mask requirement was relaxed Friday when the COVID-19 community transmission data met the second of two key thresholds set by the School Board. Parents can now opt their children out of masking-up without a doctor’s note.
