Board declines mask mandate

NORTH HAVERHILL—There will be no requirement for players and fans to wear masks during basketball games at Haverhill schools this winter.
On Monday night, the school board voted 4-3 not to impose a mask mandate at basketball games as several months of indoor competitive sports near. The vote does not change current masking protocols inside Haverhill schools for academics, but board members asked the superintendent to once again survey parents and community members about masking in advance of their December meeting.
