School is getting ready to resume in Southwest Michigan, but not all schools are requiring masks.
Berrien County is seeing a rise in COVID-19 cases. Parents with kids in the Benton Harbor Area Schools will find that masks are required for all students, teachers and staff. Last week the St. Joseph Public Schools decided to do the same.
Masks are optional in several other districts, including Niles, Brandywine, Buchanan, Lakeshore and River Valley.
