Effective today, Hardin County Schools will resume the masking procedures it had in place on August 10th, 2021. Information on these procedures were issued hours before Governor Andy Beshear issued a mask mandate for all Kentucky Public Schools.
“So if the Hardin County incidence rate is 50 or above, all students and staff will be required to wear masks while inside school buildings for the entire week the next week. If it is 49.9 or lower, masks are strongly encouraged but not required,” stated John Wright, Community Relations Specialist for Hardin County Schools.
Masks will still be required on school buses per a federal executive order. Hardin County Schools will post the incidence rate each Thursday on its social media channels, and its website www.hardin.kyschools.us.
