Updated Catholic Schools COVID Guidance

The Office of Catholic Education, recognizing that we will continue to see cases within our state and our communities fluctuate, has worked to create a plan to ease COVID guidance when it is safe to do so and reinstate mitigation strategies when deemed necessary. Below is a document outlining the updated protocols. The Office of Catholic Education has created five levels that schools will move between as needed. They range from level one, which allows masks to be optional for all individuals with minimal other mitigation strategies in place, to level five, which is a complete switch to virtual learning.
