BISD Covid-19 Mask Matrix Fall 2021

In accordance with new state mandates on COVID-19 protocols, Bellevue Independent Schools is releasing a new standard for determining masking requirements within the district. Beginning in November, our COVID-19 response team will assess the need for masking mandates on a weekly basis. Every Friday, we will assess local incidence rates to determine whether masks will be required or optional for the following week.

As basing our mitigation efforts upon the statewide color-coded incidence system has proven effective thus far, our new masking matrix will also adhere to the same system. The chart below indicates the matrix upon which we will determine masking for the upcoming week:

Universal masking is currently required in our buildings until November 2, 2021. The COVID-19 response team will conduct the first review the new Mask Matrix on Friday, October 29, and release the information for the following week.

Every Friday, we will release a visual representation of the next week’s masking requirements. Each week's matrix findings will be posted below, and on our social media outlets. Check back to this page on the afternoon of Friday, October 29 for the first post.
