FALL RIVER, MASS. (WLNE)- The Diocese of Fall River Catholic schools has extended its mask mandate through February 28.

Following DESE guidelines, this mandate will be for all students aged five-years and above as well for all teachers, staff, and visitors regardless of vaccination status.

These guidelines will be reevaluated in upcoming weeks.

“In alignment with the state, we will also revisit this policy in February 2022,” confirmed the Catholic School’s Alliance.

The schools still plan to prioritize in-person learning, but will offer remote learning to students who test positive or are close-contacts.
