Carrboro, N.C. — Carrboro High School will require masks until at least April 22 following 30 confirmed COVID-19 cases being connected to the school. Nearly half of those cases are likely linked to the high school’s prom last weekend.
Chapel-Hill Carrboro City Schools said masks will be required indoors for staff and students starting Thursday. Masks could be required beyond April 22 based on case counts related to the school, the school district said.
“Mask use indoors will slow the rate of additional transmission, and is considered a key prevention strategy in the StrongSchoolsNC Public Healht Toolkit and in CHCCS COVID protocols,” the school district said in a statement.
Students and staff are also asked to get tested for the virus, stay home if feeling sick or have COVID-19 or cold-like symptoms, self-screen daily before coming to the school and get a vaccine or booster.
