This page will continue to be updated as new guidelines are available. The health, safety, and well-being of our students and staff remains our first consideration. We will continue to monitor the on-going situation closely, including following the COVID-19 metrics and monitoring guidance from medical experts to inform future decisions.

Adjustments to BCPS' COVID-19 Mitigation Plan and Requirements 
As COVID-19 metrics continue to evolve across the state and county, BCPS will follow recommendations from local, state, and federal health experts to guide its COVID-19 mitigation response.

  • Masks/face coverings will be optional in Baltimore County public school buildings, facilities and offices beginning Tuesday, March 1, 2022. Masks/face coverings will also be optional on school buses.
  • During periods of moderate or higher community transmission, and particularly in schools with localized or school-wide outbreaks, students, staff and visitors are strongly encouraged to wear masks in indoors.
  • Parents and community members will receive notices when a school has a suspected outbreak of COVID.
