CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — The Harrison County Board of Education has decided to extend its mask requirement for the school district through January 6, 2022.

The announcement comes one month after the Harrison County BOE extended the mask mandate to November 28, 2021 due to a high number of COVID-19 cases in the area.

It has not yet been said what the reason for the current extension was.
