STAFFORD, Va. - Stafford County Public School students and teachers return to the classroom Monday as the school year begins amid rising coronavirus cases.
Students will begin the 2021-2022 school year with in-person learning five days a week, school officials say.
Staff and students are required to wear masks while indoors at all facilities regardless of vaccination status.
Masks are also required while riding school buses.
The COVID-19 outbreak in the United States crossed 100,000 new confirmed daily infections Saturday, a milestone last exceeded during the winter surge and driven by the highly transmissible delta variant and low vaccination rates in parts of the country.
