WALTERBORO, S.C. (WCSC) - The Colleton County School Board has implemented a face covering requirement for staff, students and visitors at all school facilities and on district transportation through Oct. 19.

According to district officials, this decision was made in consideration of the spread of the COVID-19 delta variant and following recommendations released by the South Carolina Department of Education, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control, and the Centers for Disease Control

“We appreciate the efforts that our students, teachers, staff and community are making to make sure our schools can remain open and that our children continue to have the opportunity to safely learn in-person,” district spokesman Sean Gruber said.

The Charleston County School District adopted a similar measure Monday night before mandating masks.
