Macon Superintendent Shares Relationship With Health Department in Tackling COVID

Macon’s first day of school is three weeks away. As we reported Tuesday, the Macon County Health Department is working with local school districts to ensure in-person learning takes place in a safe manner. Superintendent Scott Jarvis was asked what those discussions entail.

As of Tuesday, just over 33% of Macon County has initiated COVID-19 vaccination. With the Delta variant continuing to spread, Jarvis believes the district could have a small role in helping improve vaccination rates.

Jarvis notes the district plans to begin school as normal as possible and are encouraging masks, but not mandating them.
