The Mason School District will be participating in a pilot program that could change quarantine protocols in schools. They’re working with Gov. Mike DeWine to make rapid testing an option.

“If a student does not have COVID-19, we really don’t want them sitting 14 days at home, or now 28 days or 42. So, if there’s testing that could prove that they do not have COVID-19, they’re not asymptomatic, then we’d like to keep them in school if possible,” Superintendent Jonathan Cooper said.
