There has been a recent uptick in COVID cases relevant to the Delta Variant. According to the WVDHHR map, Lincoln County remained green as late as Thursday, August 12, 2021. In anticipating the potential for increased cases and subsequent changes to our status on the map, we added COVID to the August 17, 2021, LCS Board agenda for discussion. Additionally, we requested guidance from the Lincoln County Health Department. As of Tuesday, August 17, 2021, Lincoln County was orange on the DHHR map. After discussion, Superintendent, Jeffrey Kelley, recommended the adoption of the Health Department's guidelines effective August 18, 2021. Lincoln County Schools will be adhering to the guidelines until further notice. These guidelines state masks are required on buses for students at all times and drivers when passengers are loading and unloading. Masks are recommended for students, staff, and visitors that are not fully vaccinated. Masks are required for all students, staff, and visitors when Lincoln County is Orange or Red on the DHHR Metrics map. Please review the guidelines posted on our district website and Facebook page. We remain diligent and dedicated to the health and safety of our students and staff. We appreciate your patience and understanding. A link to the guidance is below. https://5il.co/xeub
