Aug. 2 county masking requirement update

On Aug. 2, Monroe County Executive Adam Bello and Public Health Commissioner Dr. Michael Mendoza announced that they are recommending all county residents, vaccinated and unvaccinated, wear masks in all public indoor facilities, consistent with current guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This is due to the county being classified as a substantial area for transmission of the COVID-19 virus.

As a result, effective Tuesday, Aug. 3, 2021, all staff, students and visitors of the district are required to be masked inside all buildings while the county falls under this designation. Masking outdoors is not required.
