Some local Catholic schools to require masks for upcoming school year
LEE COUNTY, Fla. – The Diocese of Venice will require masks inside Catholic schools within counties with a 10 percent positivity rate.
A letter from the Diocese of Venice Bishop Frank Dewane was sent Thursday evening announcing the plan for the coming school year.
The Diocese said masks will be required temporarily while indoors at Catholic schools in a county with a 10 percent positivity rate or greater. Once the positivity rate falls below 10 percent, the bishop said masks will continue to be optional.
The decision on masks will be made using the most current data in each county and communicated by the Diocesan Department of Education.
Some of the effective safety practices that were used in the past will be retained as schools within the Diocese of Venice strive to provide as normal a school year as possible.
