Covid-19 Protocols Revised, Visitors/Volunteers Welcome at Monroe County Schools
At its October 19, 2021 meeting, the Monroe County Board of Education voted unanimously to revise the district’s Covid-19 protocols. Superintendent Mike Hickman says, “We have been seeing decreased cases in our county over the past several weeks, which is really good news.” Based on this data, the Board approved the revised protocols below, effective immediately.
Recommend masking for staff and students in school settings.
Recommend that unvaccinated staff and students 12 years and older receive the Covid-19 vaccination. We will work with DPH to set up vaccination schedules for willing staff and students.
Contact trace exposures within 6 ft for 15 minutes in the school setting, allowing parents the option to quarantine their child.
Use social distancing as needed to help reduce exposures.
Visitors/Volunteers will be allowed back in the school settings. Masking will be recommended for volunteers and visitors.
These protocols will be reviewed again as needed based on the community spread rates in our area.
