In a message to families, Noblesville Schools said they would move to optional mask wearing in all schools beginning Tuesday, February 22.

The district said it will continue to follow quarantine requirements, monitor the district’s COVID data and make adjustments to its protocols as needed. All of this will be done in an effort to keep schools open and in-person.

This news comes on the heels of another school district also deciding to drop its mask mandate.

Carmel Clay Schools announced Monday that face masks will be optional in schools beginning Tuesday, February 22. Carmel Clay Schools had restarted the mask policy on August 16. Administrators cited a decline in positive cases and quarantines in the district as the basis for lifting the mandate.

The school district will continue to follow the state requirements for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.

Both districts urged parents to continue to monitor their children for signs of illness and keep them home if they are sick.

Federal guidelines still require students and staff to wear masks while on school buses.

Key US-Canada bridge reopens after police clear protesters

Key US-Canada bridge reopens after police clear protesters

The busiest border crossing between the United States and Canada reopened on Sunday night after protests against COVID-19 restrictions closed it for nearly a week, while Canadian authorities refrained from suppressing a larger protest in the Capital, Ottawa.

Detroit International Bridge Co. said in a statement that “the Ambassador Bridge is now fully open, once again allowing the free flow of trade between the Canadian and US economies.” Esther Jentzen, a company spokeswoman, said in a subsequent text message to The Associated Press that the bridge reopened to traffic at 11 p.m. ITS T.

The crossing normally carries 25% of all trade between the two countries, and the blockade on the Canadian side had disrupted business in both countries, forcing automakers to close several assembly plants.

The demonstrations have reverberated across Canada and beyond, with similar convoys in France, New Zealand and the Netherlands. The United States Department of Homeland Security has warned that truck convoys may be being prepared in the United States.
