    GVSD Moves to Mask-Optional on Feb. 28 (February 26, 2022)

    Late yesterday afternoon, the CDC released updated guidance that eased its guidelines on masking, including in schools. This reflects the substantial drop in cases, as well as the decreased risks from the Omicron variant, and will prompt GVSD to move to a mask-optional environment starting this Monday, February 28, instead of the original date of Monday, March 7.

    The most recent revisions were made to reflect the decline in both incidence and positivity rates as well as other localized metrics seen across Chester County and in the Great Valley community. If conditions stabilize and rates remain low, the plan will allow us to move to a mask-optional environment, effective March 7, 2022.
