Charles City Schools to Start Year Maskless, Per State Guidelines

The Charles City School District will start the new school year the same way they ended last school year in regards to masks.

At Monday night’s regular school board meeting, Superintendent Mike Fisher gave an update on the district’s health and mitigation efforts in response to COVID-19, which will follow state regulations.

Fisher added that staff or students who should test positive for the coronavirus during the school year won’t be ordered to quarantine, but are encouraged to take the proper safety precautions.

Fisher says public health will also no longer conduct contract tracing of positive tests, but the school district will make efforts to identify and notify those who may have been exposed to a person testing positive for COVID-19.
