GCPS Mask Guidance

On 2/25/22, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its guidance and the prevention steps that should be taken based on the spread of COVID-19 in communities. As part of the announced changes, the CDC dropped its recommendation for universal school masking and instead recommends masking only in communities at a high level of risk. In light of this updated guidance and Gwinnett County’s current designation in the “Low” level of community spread, Gwinnett County Public Schools does not require but strongly recommends the use of masks in its facilities.
