GCS Removes Mask Requirement on School Buses 

Feb. 28, 2022 – The CDC has updated its guidance for public schools and public transportation, aligning the guidance for buses with the guidance for school settings. The new guidance states, “CDC does not require wearing of masks on buses or vans operated by public or private school systems.”

As a result, GCS will align its school bus protocols with the board’s decision last week to shift school buses to mask optional, effective tomorrow, Tuesday, March 1. Students and staff may continue to wear a mask but will not be required to do so.

Guilford County Schools remains committed to working closely with its public health partners in Guilford County, and the district will continue to update its practices as the public health situation changes.
