Some Ohio school districts aren’t enforcing CDC mask policy for buses

West Holmes Middle School students head for their buses Thursday afternoon after finishing their school day. West Holmes is one of five districts in the tri-county area that is not requiring masks to be worn on buses as the new school year begins, despite the federal mandate.

Five school districts in the tri-county area have elected to sidestep a federal mandate requiring masks to be worn on public transportation, including school buses.

Ashland City Schools and Black River Local in Ashland County, Green Local in Wayne County and East Holmes and West Holmes districts in Holmes County are leaving the choice of whether to mask up on buses to parents and students.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s COVID-19 order requires drivers and passengers to “wear a mask on school buses, including on buses operated by public and private school systems, regardless of vaccination status.”
