This week the Chambers County School District is reinstating its mask mandate amid concerns of rising COVID-19 cases.
Chambers County Board of Education released this statement:
“Due to the number of reported positive COVID-19 cases in Chambers County School District, we will begin wearing masks again starting with the professional development day on Tuesday, January 4, 2022, as well as, when students return on Wednesday, January 5, 2022.
We are currently following recommendations made by the Alabama Department of Public Health for safety protocols. We are committed to keeping everyone safe so that our students can attend school for in-person learning.”
This change will be in effect until COVID-19 cases fall below 9 with the Alabama Department of Public Health dashboard, the school district announced.
Parents are encouraged to report positive student cases to their local school nurse. The district also recommends following quarantine guidelines if there is a positive case in your household.
