Delaware Public Schools Report Less than 300 In-Person COVID Cases


WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- A Delaware school board postponed its monthly meeting Monday after members of the audience refused to wear face coverings.


About 40 minutes after the Brandywine School District Board meeting was set to begin, Board President John Skrobot told the room of about 75 people that the meeting would have to be rescheduled because so many people in the crowd weren’t wearing face coverings.

Superintendent Lincoln Hohler cited Gov. John Carney’s universal mask mandate as the reason the meeting could not proceed unless everyone put on facemasks.


Several school boards, including Appoquinimink and Milford, have faced lengthy public comment periods in recent weeks with parents and community members voicing concerns about students being required to wear face coverings in classrooms.


Officials apologized to those in attendance and watching on Zoom seeking information about returning to school, saying they would get that information out in the coming days.
