ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – The St. Johns County School District is dropping some of its COVID-19 protocols.
This comes as cases in the district continue to fall.
Superintendent Tim Forson said during a school board meeting Tuesday morning that when students return from spring break on March 21, schools will be reopened to visitors and volunteers.
Indoor event capacity will also return to 100%. It had been at 75% since the school year started.
“We’ve been very careful but it’s time and we look forward to seeing the last quarter of this nine weeks look much more like we intend all quarters all school operation to be,” Forson said.
On Monday, the district reported just nine total cases of COVID-19 in students and staff. That’s the lowest for a single day since February 17.
