Coweta County Schools to end required face masks on buses
From Coweta County Schools System Press Release
Following updated guidance from the Center for Disease Control, the federal government no longer requires the wearing of face masks on school buses operated by public or private school systems, at school system discretion.
Because of this new guidance, the Coweta County School System will no longer require face masks or coverings on county school buses. The school system has not required face masks in other school settings since 2021.
The school system maintains basic COVID precautions of self health-checks for students and staff, monitoring for cases and clusters in schools, and contact tracing with the Georgia Department of Community Health when needed.
However, the school system’s COVID case rate for the most recent five-day period (February 21-25) following the school system’s winter break has been 0, with no cases reported in any Coweta County school and all schools in normal operations. Coweta County’s community COVID transmission rate has also dropped to very low levels in recent weeks.
