Mediapolis School Removing Mask RequirementEffective immediately, Mediapolis Community School District will be removing the mask requirements for students and staff due to the new guidance by Iowa Public Health and the Department of Education. While COVID-19 positive and symptomatic children will be excluded, exposed children will no longer be required to stay home, regardless of mask usage. When there is a positive case, parents will be given information around the exposed case in order to make their own informed decisions regarding risks. If your student tests positive for COVID-19, the following will be required to return: 10 days after symptoms start and 24 hours with no fever and improved symptoms OR 10 days after positive test (if no symptoms).It will be left up to the parent to make the decision if they want their child to continue to wear a face covering for reasons that make sense to their family or that child’s individual health condition.Again, this is effective Monday, May 17th.Please keep in mind that this is a fluid situation and we will monitor local/county data regularly for thresholds and increases in COVID cases working with the Iowa Department of Public Health, Des Moines County Public Health, and the CDC. ...
