A State Health Commissioner Order of Public Health Emergency has been issued Thursday that requires all students, staff and visitors to wear masks while indoors at K-12 school settings.
Culpeper County Public Schools (CCPS) said it is required by law to follow all federal and state health orders. Based on this order, CCPS will require all students, staff and visitors to wear masks while indoors on school property effective Friday, Aug. 13.
This order supersedes School Board Policy and will remain in effect until the CDC guidelines for K-12 schools change, or the order is amended or rescinded. The Culpeper County Public Schools Phase III mitigation plan will be updated to reflect this new information.
