    Masking on School Bus Update

    February 27, 2022

    The CDC released new pandemic guidance on Friday, February 25, 2022 that eliminated the mask requirement on school buses. CDC is making this change to  align with updated guidance that no longer recommends universal indoor mask wearing in K-12 schools and early education settings in areas, like Lancaster and Chester counties, with a low or medium COVID-19 Community Level.

    You can review the new school transportation guidelines here:

    CDC Transportation FAQ

    Effective immediately, drivers and passengers are not required to wear face coverings on district provided transportation. Please do not hesitate to contact me at morner@octorara.org should you have any questions.
