Helias Catholic High School changes masking requirements for students and staff starting Wednesday

Helias Catholic High School


Helias Catholic High School in Jefferson City is changing its masking requirements for students and staff on Wednesday.

According to the high school's website, the school will make changes to its COVID-19 protocols due to a drop in county and school case numbers compared to earlier in the school year. The school states hospitalizations from COVID-19 have also gone down.

Starting on Wednesday, masks will no longer be needed during transitions within the high school for students and staff or in common areas where social distancing is possible.

Students and staff are still asked to wear masks during large gatherings or when individuals cannot socially distance themselves. This includes assemblies, school mass, and in the classroom when close interaction is required.

Helias Catholic states anyone is welcome to wear a mask beyond the required times by the school.

The school said if cases remain low, more COVID-19 measures may change. If cases of the virus rise, protocols may be put back into place.
