Maryland Public School Reinstates Mask Mandate
A public school in Maryland has reinstated an N95 mask mandate for all 3rd grade students. This comes after a few kids in the grade tested positive for the Corona Virus.
In a letter to the parents, the school said “3 or more individuals have tested positive for COVID-19 in [redacted] class in the past 10 days. We are taking the following steps to keep our school environment as safe as possible for in-person teaching and learning.”
“Additional N95 masks have been distributed and students and staff in identified classes or activities will be required to mask while in school for the next 10 days, except while eating or drinking,” the school wrote. “Masks will become optional again following the 10-day period.”
As Covid-19 cases are on the rise once again, it would not be surprising if you see more and more schools begin to reinstate mask mandates.
Just yesterday, it was announced that First Lady Jill Biden tested positive for Covid-19.
