This is not a SODA rule; all building permit holders must abide by the district’s safety protocols in place at that time.

On Aug. 27, 2021 the Wayne County Health Department issued an order that all students, staff and visitors wear face masks inside school buildings. The county order applies to all schools with grades preschool to 12th grade. It will remain in effect until community transmission for Wayne County is categorized as “moderate” by the CDC for at least 14 consecutive days or until further notice by the Wayne County Health Department. See the Michigan Safe Start Map for the current positivity rate and case rates
