Douglas County School Board to vote to introduce masks in schools

The new School Board, which oversees the Douglas County School District, will meet on Tuesday to decide whether to remove the mask requirements in schools.

The resolution, which the Board of Education will consider, says the district will not require the use of masks in schools unless required by federal, state, or local health laws or regulations. According to the ordinance, the school board will also not mandate COVID-19 vaccination for students or district employees.

“The Board (b) recommends, regardless of vaccination status, it is the personal and parental choice of whether children should wear face disguises while attending school, and provide for appropriate and appropriate accommodations for students with disabilities …” reads resolution. …

The Student Council meeting starts at 5:00 PM and there are at least two hours of public comment scheduled. According to the agenda, the board will not vote for no masks until around 20:10.

The meeting will take place a month after four new conservative members were elected to the school board last month – all against the demands of the masks. They hold a majority on a seven-member board of directors.

However, in October, a federal judge blocked an exemption from masks at the new Douglas County Health Department, saying it violated the rights of students with disabilities, so it is unclear what effect an immediate vote to end the mandate would have.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends universal camouflage inside school buildings for students and staff. According to a Sept.24 study, the agency found that counties that did not have face closure requirements saw a larger increase in COVID-19 cases among children after starting school during 2021-22.

Colorado saw an increase in COVID-19 cases among schoolchildren after returning from school in the fall, especially among those – aged 5 to 11 – who were not eligible for vaccinations until November. Infections among children have declined recently, but health officials have warned they could increase again as the holidays approach.
