The South Bend Community School corporation has revised their COVID-19 protocols.
The change, based on guidance from the CDC and the Indiana Department of Health, allows students and staff at the schools to return sooner if they are exposed to or infected with COVID-19. The district is easing some rules during the omicron surge, allowing rapid tests with negative results to allow returns to the classroom.
The district says they are hoping to provide enough at-home tests for families in the coming months. COVID-19 cases are currently up in the South Bend Community School District.
