The Coffey County Health Department has shared information with USD 244 on the best type of masks to use in schools so students and staff will not be considered close contacts and have to quarantine if they come in close contact with a COVID-19 positive case. Remember this is only for schools in Coffey County. Please see the information below. If you have questions, please contact the Coffey County Health Department at 364-8631.
Good news for area schools! If a positive COVID-19 case arises in a school setting, close contacts will no longer require a 14-day quarantine as long as BOTH parties are wearing approved face masks. The type of masks shown below will keep you out of quarantine.
We are encouraging schools to let families know about this information. We are encouraging people to not use single-layer masks and gaiters. Thank you so much for your cooperation!
Stay Healthy Everyone!
