Current Mask Mandate and Rules
Dear Wooster Community,
Monday evening, Governor Lamont announced that he is recommending to the CT State Legislature that they extend his mask mandate to February 28, but then lift the mandate after that, with the suggestion that local municipalities then take responsibility for mask rules going forward.
Here at Wooster, we will be looking at the data and assessing risk relative to our goals of keeping our community members safe, while also creating the best possible conditions for learning. As throughout the pandemic, we'll seek to best understand the conditions and possible consequences by doing our research and seeking out expert advice. Obviously, masks will remain in place until at least February 28. Rest assured that we will inform the community of our thoughts about protocols after the mandate as soon as we understand some of what is as yet unclear, like the element of local control, and the local trajectory of the virus over the next couple of weeks.
Thank you, as always, for your patience, understanding, and resilience.
Head of School
