The Madison City Board of Education approved a COVID-19 Mask Matrix that governs the status of masking in schools based on an Alabama Department of Public Health dashboard of positivity rates per county.
The COVID-19 Mask Matrix was approved unanimously at the Nov. 5 Board meeting. The Mask Matrix protocols follow a two-week trend in the ADPH county-by-county dashboard. Here is the MCS Mask Matrix approved by the MCS Board.
Masls optional became effective in high schools Nov. 8 but remain required in middle and elementary until COVID positivity test rates in Madison County remain in the low category for two consecutive weeks. More information on the Madison County Health services page.
