Leon County School Board Member Has COVID-19; All LCS Students Eat Free This School Year
Leon County School Board member Rosanne Wood says she has COVID-19, despite being fully vaccinated and wearing masks.
She suspects she caught it at last week’s school board meeting, which was crowded with speakers weighing in on the district’s mask policy. She says many of them said they were not vaccinated, and there wasn’t much social distancing.
In a statement to the Tallahassee Democrat, Wood said the board meeting is the only place she’s been recently among “unvaccinated, unmasked people.” She said, “I’m miserable. But, because I got vaccinated, at least I’m not in the hospital like some of our teachers and children.”
Wood says she got tested when her asthma flared up along with other symptoms. She added that her 30-year-old vaccinated daughter also got COVID this week. She says it happened during jury duty at the Leon County Courthouse “with many unmasked, coughing people.”
Free Food For All LCS Students
All Leon County public school students can eat breakfast and lunch for free during the entire 2021-22 school year. The meals are available to students at no cost through their school cafeteria.
The district credits a one-year waiver offered by the United States Department of Agriculture.
All menus can be viewed on the district’s mobile menu application, Nutrislice.
