The Facts

In Tennessee, the Williamson County Board of Education approved a temporary mask requirement for students, staff, and visitors inside buildings and on buses starting August 12th.

A group of people against the mask requirement gathered outside and heckled people as they left the session. A Williamson County Sheriff’s office official requested the crowd to be peaceful.

Thursday, confrontation and shouting were seen as parents protested over mask mandates at a school district office near Atlanta, GA.

Protests from parents came a day after the fifth graders at a Cobb County school were sent home for virtual learning due to increasing numbers of Covid-19 cases.
