With testing in place, does that mean students won't have to wear masks?

Posted by:

Masks and all other mitigation practices (social distancing, frequent sanitization, hand washing, etc.) will still be required when schools are open for in person learning. Schools will be cleaned throughout the day with a focus on high touch areas. Students or staff who are positive for COVID 19, students or staff who are experiencing COVID 19 symptoms, and students or staff who have been in contact with a person who was positive for COVID 19 will still be temporarily quarantined and assigned a virtual teacher for up to 14 days before returning. This test is an additional layer of mitigation for staff and students. It should not change anyone’s safety practices in or out of school.
