ATLANTA — Atlanta Pubic Schools said it’s still considering a COVID-19 vaccine requirement for its staff and students but it’s not ready to make an official decision yet. This comes after new guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were released Tuesday. The CDC now recommends that even vaccinated people return to wearing masks indoors in parts of the U.S. where COVID-19 continues to surge.
New information about the Delta variant having the ability to spread among vaccinated people, caused the CDC to make the new recommendations. The CDC also recommends teachers, staff, students and visitors should wear masks regardless of vaccination status.
