Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin signed a bill ending school mask mandates.

On March 1, Virginia parents will have the option of letting children go to school without wearing a mask. In January, Youngkin issued an executive order to repeal the mandate, but a few school boards challenged the order. After the executive order, some students in Fairfax and Loudoun counties were suspended for not wearing a mask. And Woodgrove High School in Loudoun County made headlines after suspending an Eagle Scout for 10 days.
