PACIFIC GROVE, Calif. – A small school district in California began demanding interior masks again on Tuesday due to rising COVID-19 cases.
The Pacific Grove Unified School District, at the southern end of Monterey Bay, announced the requirement Monday after the Monterey County Department of Health reported an average seven-day test positive rate of 5.2% and a seven-day average of 12.4 cases per 100,000 population.
Last month, the district board set thresholds for indoor masking when the test positivity rate exceeded 5% and the case rate exceeded 10 per 100,000 population.
The district serves a population of about 2,050 K-12 students in five schools. Its adult school serves about 2,500 students, according to the district’s website.
