FARGO – The Fargo-Cass Public Health is recommending the same guidelines for K-12 schools, including universal masking for all teachers, staff, students and visitors, regardless of vaccination status and community transmission rates.
As we all know, the CDC has recommended residents to wear masks in indoor public settings, including those who are fully vaccinated.
The Delta variant has most recently surged to become the predominant variant, from less than 1% of cases in May to over 80% of cases in July.
The fully vaccinated rates in Cass County for 12-18 year-olds are approximately 30%, and 19-39 year-olds are below 50%.
