MoCo Reaches Moderate Transmission for the First Time in Over 2 Months, Seven Consecutive Days Required for Indoor Face Covering Requirement to End

by MCS Staff

10/23 Update: Montgomery County is in moderate transmission for the third consecutive day.

Montgomery County has reached moderate transmission for Covid-19, per the indicator status on MoCo’s Covid-19 dashboard with 49.8 cases per 100,000 residents in the past 7 days.

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 six more consecutive days following today, 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.
