Alexander City Schools reinstate mask mandate policy


ALEXANDER CITY, Ala. – Alexander City Schools (ACS) have reinstated its mandatory mask mandate following a spike of COVID-19 cases.

The school system has enacted the measure after a record number of average cases per day was recorded in Tallapoosa County.

The Omicron variant of COVID-19 has symptoms that more resemble the common cold. The original variant’s most telling symptom was losing a sense of taste and/or smell. However, this is much less prevalent with Omicron.

As well as the mask mandate, ACS is limiting sporting event attendance to 30 percent capacity for all home games.
