On Friday, the CDC unveiled several updates to their COVID guidelines, addressing the confusion about school buses being recognized as federal transportation, and therefore carrying a mask requirement.

The CDC said that mask usage was no longer required in low or medium level areas.

St. Joseph County currently falls into the medium level, and the Penn-Harris-Madison schools quickly announced Friday that they would no longer require masks on their buses.

Cases are on a steady decline now in Michiana and a number of mandates are being lifted in schools and other public places.
