Health Department Emergency Orders
The Barry-Eaton District Health Department (BEDHD) issued two emergency orders that went into effect on Wednesday, September 22, 2021.
The first emergency order (EO 2021-1) states the education institutions and all persons in educational settings must adhere to specific isolation and quarantine measures, following identification of close contacts, household exposures, or confirmed COVID-19 cases.
The second emergency order (EO 2021-2) states, "All Persons in Educational Settings, regardless of vaccination status, are required to consistently and properly wear a facial covering while inside any enclosed building or structure of an Educational Institution, vehicle of an Educational Institution, and/or off-site building or structure while participating in school-sponsored field trips or similar activities." The order then notes that “Educational Institutions” or “Educational Settings” are "broadly defined and includes but is not limited to, youth camps, youth programs, childcare centers, preschools, primary through secondary schools, and vocational schools. This definition includes educationally affiliated extracurricular activities such as school athletics and field trips, and transportation provided to and from educational settings and educationally affiliated extracurricular activities. Persons in attendance at any meetings, including school board meetings, held within the facility are included."
The second emergency order supersedes the August 9, 2021 decision by the GLPS Board of Education to approve a "mandatory mask requirement during the instructional day, when inside any Grand Ledge Public Schools facility, for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status, in accordance with the CDC’s “Guidance for COVID-19 Prevention in K-12 Schools” beginning Monday, August 16, 2021."
