Dayton, Ohio – The recent drop in COVID-19 cases across the state has prompted schools to ease or lift mask mandates.
Starting today, visitors, staff, and PK–12 students during the school hours at Oakland Schools will no longer have to wear face coverings.
Oakwood Schools has said that masks will continue to be mandatory on school buses.
“We know there will be individuals who will prefer to continue wearing masks, and we will support those individuals,” said the school.
As part of its ongoing data monitoring, the district has said that it is prepared to restore the mask policy if needed.
In accordance with Tipp City Schools’ announcement, masks will no longer be required for students or employees on school buses starting with the afternoon bus routes on Monday, February 28.
Tipp City Schools released this announcement in alignment with the CDC’s recent decision.
West Carrollton City Schools announced through a Facebook post that the mask requirement on school buses has been lifted. The change is effective immediately.
