AFTER LISTENING AND WATCHING THE EMERGENCY DUVAL COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD MEETING TODAY -August 23, 2021- to deal with "a mask mandate" in light of the amazing and potentially deadly upsurge of the Delta Variant affecting OUR children--it is still on one of PBS cable stations--I am more convinced than ever...and I did not have to go far to arrive at this decision...Jacksonville/Duval County is in Real Sad/Bad/Terrible/Awful shape. Watching Jacksonville's Ignorance On Parade of "conspiracy theorists" and "ne'er-do-wells" is a Sad Commentary on Jacksonville's Potential as a responsible "Think Tank" City of Mature Thinkers.
BTW...The Duval County DID vote 5-2 to impose a mask mandate. Duval County's Covid cases in the School System now exceed 800. Last year at this time, it was 40.
