The Green Bay Area Public School District Board set a threshold Monday night for when the District's mask mandate would end.

That trigger is when cases fall to 100 cases or fewer per week, per 100,000 Brown County residents.

That figure was at more than 540 Monday night, and has been above the 100 threshold this entire school year.

The figure did fall below 100 from February to August of this year.

If the mask mandate ends due to the threshold, but cases then return to the 100 per week threshold, the mandate would be re-instated.

The Board will also no longer require unvaccinated students to quarantine if they had close contact with a COVID-19-positive person, unless the student is symptomatic or the student lives with the postive person.

Both the mask threshold metric and the updated quarantine rules take effect Tuesday.
