Worcester Public Schools Updates COVID-19 Policy


With the end of the pandemic, there has been a major change in the policies to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 disease. As of the 2023-24 school year, the Worcester Public School district has  implemented new policies that are less strict than they once were.

Symptomatic students are recommended to be dismissed and tested for the disease. Non-asymptomatic students can remain in school, regardless of being vaccinated and exposure.

If you test positive, you must isolate for five days, beginning on the day of your positive test results or the first day of symptoms. If your symptoms have improved after 5 days, you may return to school with a mask. If you test negative on day 6 or later, you may return without a mask. You may also return to school without a mask if ten days have passed.

For students who want to take precautionary measures, masks are available in the Health Center, and hand sanitizer is required to be in accessible areas.

Read the full policy here.

About the Contributor
Jason Murillo
Jason Murillo, Editor-In-Chief
I am excited to be co-editor-in-chief of the newspaper as we launch our brand new website to our peers, our teachers, and those we know in the Worcester Community. I greatly enjoy writing as I see it as a great method of self-expression, and I particularly enjoy it in a journalistic setting. Outside of the newspaper, I am part of the Drama Club, A Capella, and Chorus. I have also published works in The Apricot Journal. Outside of South High, I am a student at The Hanover Theatre Conservatory and am part of their Youth Acting Company. Performance arts is a big interest for me for similar reasons as writing. Feel free to email me at [email protected].
