CSD will require students Kindergarten through 12th grades, staff, and visitors to wear a mask while indoors when physical distancing (six feet or greater) cannot be established and maintained. This policy will be reviewed regularly to consider current COVID-19 numbers and possible modifications to the policy.
Face coverings are an additional tool that individuals should use to help slow the spread of COVID-19 but does not replace other social distancing requirements.
You are asked to wear a mask/face covering over your nose and mouth when others are nearby, or when you are moving through the halls or in a classroom. If you are seated and can maintain a distance of 6 feet from another person, you do not need to wear a mask/face covering. Wearing a mask does not eliminate the need to socially distance yourself from others and wash your hands frequently.
Why wear a mask or face covering?
Individuals can be contagious before the onset of symptoms. You may be contagious and do not know it. If you have covered your nose and mouth, it can limit the spread of COVID-19.
We touch our face less when our face is covered. Touching your face after touching something contaminated with COVID-19 increases your chances of getting sick with COVID-19.
