Masks required again at schools in Cheltenham, Lower Merion – NBC10 Philadelphia


Masks will again be required for students and staff in two school districts in Montgomery County.

Cheltenham School District and Lower Merion School District announced Thursday that indoor masking will be required again after the CDC moved Montgomery County to the “high” community level on its COVID data tracker.

“When this happens, per the recommendation of the Montgomery County Office of Public Health (MCOPH), masks are mandatory indoors and on public transportation,” the Cheltenham School District superintendent wrote, Dr. Brian Scriven, in a letter to families and staff.

The mask term will begin Friday for both school districts.

“Remember to send your child to school wearing a mask,” Scriven wrote. “If your child does not have a mask, they are available in the nurse’s suite. Once the county returns to “medium” on data tracking, the district will revert to “mask recommended.” We are still offering Test to Stay and Mask to Stay for eligible students and staff. »
