MoCo in Moderate Transmission for 4 Consecutive Days, 7 Needed for Indoor Face Covering Requirement to End

by MCS Staff

Montgomery County is in moderate transmission for the fourth consecutive day. 7 consecutive days are required for indoor face covering requirement to end.

Per the Montgomery County government website, “Montgomery County’s indoor face covering requirement was reinstated because the County reached “substantial transmission” level. It will end when the County returns to a  “moderate transmission” status for 7 consecutive days. See the County’s COVID-19 data.”

If the indicator status remains at moderate transmission, or lower, for three more consecutive days, then the indoor face covering requirement will end.

This does not, however, mean that students and teachers will not have to wear face coverings at school as MCPS will have to make their own decision on the issue.

I thought we had 99.8 % of moco residents vaccinated, so how do we still have moderate transmission
