On December 30, 2021, the Louisiana Department of Health released new guidance regarding COVID-19. While these are not mandates, they are recommendations to help ensure our students are able to continue learning in their normal educational environment. Below are bullet points from the Louisiana Department of Health release.
Mask universally indoors and outdoors when social distancing is not possible.
Stay at least six feet apart during mealtimes when masking is not possible.
Suspend extracurricular activities until statewide incidence is below 200 infections per 100,000 people.
Avoid holding social gatherings (e.g., school dances or pep rallies) until statewide incidence is below 200 infections per 100,000 people.
Get vaccinated and boosted when eligible.
Children should be tested prior to return to school.
Again, these are recommendations from the Louisiana Department of Health and not mandates.
