The communication from ODE Director Colt Gill to school superintendents and others includes the following:
Masks are not required (students, staff, volunteers, spectators) for outdoor activities, including sporting events and graduation ceremonies. Fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear face masks at indoor sporting events or graduation ceremonies. Distancing and capacity limits still apply.
Fully vaccinated staff are not required to wear masks or socially distance indoors when students are not present. Nor are vaccinated staff, school board members or community members required to wear masks or socially distance indoors at school board meetings if children are not present.
Vaccination status must be checked by schools.
The guidelines above are optional. Schools can still choose to require face coverings.
