FCS: Masks Optional For Upcoming School Year

Findlay City Schools says the wearing of masks will be optional for the 2021-22 school year.

However, students and staff who have not been vaccinated are highly encouraged to wear a mask.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new mask guidance in July saying vaccinated students and teachers do not need to wear a mask while in school buildings.

However, the agency added that unvaccinated students and staff should still wear a mask.

The American Academy of Pediatrics is recommending that everyone older than age 2 wear a mask in school when the new school year begins, regardless of vaccination status.

The first day for students at Findlay City Schools will be Tuesday, August 24th.
