Montgomery County is in moderate transmission for the fifth 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 two 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.
