DHD #10 not issuing mask mandates in schools

REGION — As COVID-19 cases, including from variants, are rising, District Health Department #10 (DHD#10) continues to support the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) recommendations for universal indoor masking by all students, staff, teachers, and visitors of K-12 schools regardless of vaccination status. Also recommended is at least three-feet physical distance between students within the classrooms, along with screening testing, frequent handwashing, proper indoor ventilation, and respiratory etiquette such as cover coughs and sneezes.  

Several local public health departments have issued mandates in their jurisdictions that require universal masking for students, staff, and visitors in K-12 schools. At this time, DHD#10 will not be issuing a mandate for universal indoor masking in K-12 schools or childcare settings within the 10-county jurisdiction that includes Crawford, Kalkaska, Lake, Manistee, Mason, Mecosta, Missaukee, Newaygo, Oceana, and Wexford counties. Each school system and childcare setting must determine the best course of action based on local data and case trends, as well as impacts to families and staff.
