Montgomery and Prince George’s counties in Maryland require public school staff to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or face weekly testing.
Montgomery County schools on Friday posted the mandate in their reopening guide. More details about submitting vaccination proof or weekly testing requirements will be released before the school year begins on Aug. 30.
Staff for Prince George’s County public schools will have to provide proof of vaccination by Aug. 27, said the system’s CEO Monica Goldson on Friday. The team will get more details about submitting proof of immunization or where to go for weekly on-site testing by Aug. 20.
“I am both concerned and disappointed by the rise of the COVID-19 delta variant. As science and data have shown, the best way to protect yourself against this highly contagious and dangerous disease is by getting vaccinated,” Ms. Goldson said in a video message.
