CC Schools: Students without anti-Covid masks
The Carson City School District announced this week it will continue to require everyone, including students, employees, parents, vendors, volunteers, visitors and guests, to wear facemasks when indoors and while riding in school buses. Despite a drop in covid-19 infection rates, the school district is still suffering from a high infection rates.” Masks must be worn on campus and on school buses. This requirement shall remain enforced until county infection rates reach the “low” category for two weeks in a row.
The mask requirement started on Sept. 2 in response to increased student infections which have reached up to 526 cases in the past month according to school officials. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) strongly recommends that only those within 3 to 6 feet of infected students would be considered endangered. If any infected student was not wearing a mask, then an entire class could be excluded from school and sent home for a 10-day period. Vaccinated students do not need to be excluded or quarantined including those students wearing masks, sitting more than 3 to 6 feet away from infected students.
