Jackson County Executive Frank White, Jr. said Thursday that he is recommending a public health order requiring universal masking for K-12 public schools in the county.If the county Legislature approves it, the public health order would take effect on Tuesday at the earliest and remain in effect until 6 p.m. on Feb. 3.White said he is making the recommendation in consultation with Jackson County Health Department Acting Director Ray Dlugolecki, MPH and Emergency Management Coordinator Troy Schulte because of the surge in COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations.”We know how valuable in-person learning is for students, but maintaining that practice is becoming increasingly difficult as schools struggle to have enough teachers in the classroom and more children are getting sick at an alarming rate,” White said in a news release. “Mask wearing has proven to be an effective way to mitigate the spread of the virus and will help keep students, teachers, staff and visitors safe in school buildings. Our vigilant masking efforts, combined with vaccinations for everyone ages 5 and older, will be key to reducing the risk of COVID-19 spread in schools.”
