Youngkin Mask Order

Youngkin Mask Order
Posted on 02/28/2022
Mask Order"On February 25, the CDC announced significant changes in its COVID-19 orders and mitigation strategies that affect K-12 schools.  These changes include revised metrics and strategies that communities, school districts, and families should consider when making decisions about health and safety related to COVID. 

After careful review of the announcements from CDC, Pittsylvania County Schools will make further adjustments in previous mask requirements.  These changes align with the CDC revisions and will go into effect Monday, February 28, 2022. 

On Monday, February 28, student masks will be optional on school buses.  This change aligns with the CDC announcement made last Friday removing school buses from its transportation mask order.  Masks will also be optional for employees.  This change reflects the new CDC metrics and actions taken by the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry to eliminate their requirement in March.  Students and employees who choose to wear masks are welcome to do so."
