JACKSON, Miss. (WTOK) – The Mississippi Department of Health released guidance Friday for K-12 schools in Mississippi.

Here are the highlights:
• All eligible students, teachers, and staff 12 years of age and older should receive COVID-19 vaccination.• Masks should be worn indoors in school settings by all individuals (age 2 and older) who are not fully vaccinated.

• Schools should maintain at least three feet of physical distance between students within classrooms, combined with indoor mask wearing by people who are not fully vaccinated, to reduce transmission risk.

• Routine screening testing of asymptomatic unvaccinated students, teachers and staff is recommended as an additional measure to prevent further transmission.

• Schools should continue to isolate COVID-19 infected students, teachers, and staff and continue contact tracing to identify exposed individuals for quarantine and exclusion from the school setting.

• All students, teachers and staff who have symptoms of any infectious illness, regardless of vaccination status, should stay home from school and be evaluated by their healthcare provider.

• As a reminder, fully vaccinated students, teachers and staff:
* Do not have to wear a mask when indoors;
* Do not have to quarantine or be excluded from the school setting if they have COVID-19 exposure; and
* Do not have to be tested unless symptomatic.

MSDH has developed a School Based Testing Initiative to facilitate onsite screening testing for all unvaccinated asymptomatic students, teachers and staff. Information is available here. MSDH has also developed an Adopt-a-school Vaccination Program, working in partnership with schools and providers, to facilitate onsite COVID-19 vaccinations for all eligible students, teachers and staff.
