Updated Mask Mandates in Maryland Schools: Calvert County Public Schools to require masks for students, staff and visitors


As an update to “Mask Mandates in Maryland Schools: What we know up to this point“ where I have provided updates on August 2nd, 5th and 8th…so now that it is the 11th I thought this would be a good time to provide additional information about another school system. Calvert County Public Schools has announced that they “will require all staff, students and visitors in all schools PreK-12 to wear masks in school buildings regardless of vaccination status.” (See page 10 of this document)

Here is my updated list of school systems that have I have seen updates on relating to masks:

Requiring masks for students and staff:

  • Anne Arundel County
  • Baltimore County
  • Baltimore City
  • Calvert County
  • Charles County
  • Frederick County
  • Howard County
  • Montgomery County
  • Prince George’s County

Encouraging the use of face masks by students and staff who are not vaccinated or no mask mandate:

  • Queen Anne’s County
  • Washington County


Also…reported by FOX 45 back on July 28th:

“Several districts have already said they will not require masks…”

  • Carroll County Schools says the board of education would have to vote to change their policy.
  • Harford County Schools says they have no information to share at this time.

I have not seen recent updates from these two school districts so I have not added them to the lists above.


Something to watch today…the Carroll County Board of Education has a meeting today at 5:00pm. If they plan to make any changes to their current masking policy I would expect that to happen this afternoon.

I will continue to watch out for further announcements from other jurisdictions in Maryland (especially central Maryland).

  1. How many times do school councils have to be told masks don’t work!! In addition, school age children do not get Covid and do not transmit Covid!! This is not following the science, chancing children may develop illness from Bactria accumulating germs, and continuing the fear factor and trauma to our children!! Parents, wake up!! Take your lead from the mom’s out West!! Get up and fight the decision to make school children wear masks!!
