Beginning Monday, February 28, 2022, the McDuffie County School System will be eliminating the mask requirement for students and staff with the exception of buses and the CDC guidelines listed below.
- They have tested positive;
- They are assumed positive due to a COVID positive person staying in the home; or
- They are an unvaccinated individual with direct contact to a positive case.
These individuals may return to school on the 6th day if they have been fever-free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications and they agree to wear a face covering for an additional five days.
The district requests all families to closely monitor their students and not send to school any students who may be experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or who appear to be ill in any way.
