During the first half of the school year in 2021, a two-week mask mandate went into effect at any Summit County school that was above a 2% confirmed case percentage. Masks are currently required in schools, due to the public health order that went into effect on Jan. 7. It is currently set to expire on Feb. 21, however Health Director Dr. Phil Bondurant and Summit County Manager Tom Fisher can extend the order.
