How is the Delta COVID Variant Affecting School Reopening in Atlanta? 

The end of summer marks back to school, but with news of the Delta variant spreading, will school be reopening in Atlanta this Fall?

Preparing for back to school

Despite hopes, Atlanta’s Delta variant and school reopenings are causing great uncertainty with delays, quarantines, mask requirements, and a return to virtual learning. Fortunately, the Covid vaccine has shown to be an essential tool at preventing the spread of Covid in schools, including the Delta variant. Currently available to anyone age 12+, the more vaccinated people in school, the lower the risk of an outbreak.

Masks have also proven to be an important tool for combating the disease. Although not everyone can or will choose to be vaccinated, masks can reduce the risk of infection spreading and protect the mask wearer.

Local guidance 

Due to concerns regarding the Delta variant and school reopenings in Atlanta, public schools require masks for all students and teachers, along with additional prevention strategies, such as social distancing.
