GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) - Grand Mesa Middle School was placed on a full mask mandate last week after their COVID positivity rate hit two percent.

According to the School District 51 policy, once the two percent threshold is reached all students must wear masks for 14 calendar days. The incidence rate must remain below one percent for seven consecutive days in a row before the mandate can be lifted. Currently, the school has one active case so if cases remain low the mandate will be lifted next Wednesday on Sept. 22.

In the unlikely event the decision to implement remote learning is made, some factors will be considered. These factors include the number of students and staff with COVID, the number of staff absent, and the number of substitute teachers available.
