The CDC reversed its decision made three months ago that fully immunized people do not need to wear face coverings in schools or summer camps.
Now, the CDC recommends that everyone wear masks regardless of their immunization status due to the Delta variant and the upsurge in COVID-19 cases.
Meanwhile, the Richmond County school system requires all students, staff and visitors to wear masks at all RCSS facilities and on all buses, regardless of their immunization status.
