ORLANDO, Fla. - Orange County Public Schools on Wednesday announced that it is relaxing a policy that dictates face coverings.
The use of face masks will be voluntary for all adults beginning Monday, Feb. 28. OCPS cites the continuing decline of COVID-19 cases in the district and in the community as the motivation to change policy.
Anyone exhibiting illness or symptoms of COVID-19 should stay home.
Masks had already been voluntary for students but were mandatory for staff and campus visitors since the COVID-19 omicron variant surge earlier this year.
