CCS Supt. Michael Beresford announced the changes in an email to parents that same morning. He stated that the updated policy at extracurricular events is consistent with policies at public venues throughout the state.

“We are hopeful and optimistic that protocols will continue to be relaxed as we approach the second semester,” Beresford stated. “We will continue to monitor our local data and work with state and county health officials to ensure the safety of our students and staff while adhering to legally required contact tracing and quarantine guidelines.”

Masks will continue to be required in the classroom to reduce the number of students missing class, as the Indiana State Dept. of Health does not require those wearing masks to quarantine after a possible exposure to COVID-19.
