CPS mask guidelines for students 11 and younger begin Monday
Columbia Public Schools will require masks for summer school students under 11 beginning Monday. Although the district previously dropped its indoor mask policy on June 4, the district has decided to bring masks back for younger students due to rising COVID-19 cases.
Although masks will be required inside and on buses, they will not be mandatory outdoors. Changes to quarantine guidelines will also take place on Monday with fully vaccinated or masked students who are exposed to COVID-19 not needing to quarantine.
According to the district’s website, there are currently 18 elementary students with COVID-19 and 263 elementary students in quarantine. There are 2 positive cases among middle school students right now with 7 in quarantine and 3 high school students with COVID-19 and 8 in quarantine.
