On Friday, the CDC updated its guidance on when mask wearing is recommended indoors at school. Wearing a mask is no longer a strong recommendation when your community level is low.
Wearing masks is, of course, always an option, and up to your preference. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask and follow quarantine/isolation guidelines.
Where we stand now: As of February 28, 2022, the Williamson County Community Level is low. Mask wearing is up to individual preference at this time.
To read more about community levels and corresponding safety recommendations, continue:
Low: Wear a mask based on personal preference, informed by your personal level of risk
Medium: If you are at high risk for severe illness, or are immunocompromised, talk to your healthcare provider about additional precautions, including wearing a mask indoors in public
High: Wear a well-fitting mask indoors in public (including schools), regardless of vaccination status or individual risk
