Douglas County Commissioners provide clarity regarding recent public health order

The Board of Douglas County Commissioners wishes to provide additional clarification following the Douglas County School District’s response to the public health order adopted by the Douglas County Board of Health on Friday, Oct., 8 and effective on Oct. 9.

Statement from the Board of Douglas County Commissioners:

“The Douglas County Board of Health public health order is clear. What is unclear and is creating confusion among Douglas County families is the School District’s recent statement, in response to the order ….. recommending that students mask. While it is certainly within the School District’s discretion to recommend that students mask, the District must now accommodate the mask opt-out opportunity in the public health order, allowing students, with the proper paperwork from their adult caregiver, to opt out of the mask requirement, and allow adults within a school environment to self-select and do the same.”
