Update Regarding COVID-19 Facial Covering and Quarantine Guidance

Update Regarding COVID-19 Protocols

November 19, 2021

Broward County Public Schools has been implementing protocols to ensure the health and well-being of our students and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to legislation signed into law by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, effective immediately, facial coverings will be strongly encouraged but not mandatory in schools.

Additionally, no asymptomatic students or employees will be required to quarantine if they are a close contact due to COVID-19 exposure.

COVID-19 safety protocols implemented this school year – which are in compliance with the new law – will continue.
