Mask Mandate Changes--February 28th

At Tuesday night's school committee meeting, the Somerset Berkley Regional School Committee voted to amend the existing face-covering policy to end the mandate and to make the wearing of masks in schools optional. Masks will be strongly encouraged to be worn but are optional. There are three exceptions for when masks must be worn in schools:

  1. Students and staff returning from 5-day quarantine following a positive COVID test must follow strict mask use, other than when eating, drinking, or outside, and conduct active monitoring for symptoms, through day 10 of exposure.
  2. By federal public health order, all students and staff are required to wear a mask on school buses.
  3. Masks will be required in all school health offices.

These changes will begin on Monday, February 28 when we return from February vacation.

We wish everyone a wonderful, safe and restful week!
