Gwinnett County Public Schools has dropped its face mask mandate in light of new guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.

District officials announced the move late Friday afternoon. Under the change, masks will be “strongly recommended” in GCPS facilities, but not required. District spokeswoman Sloan Roach said that means Gwinnett County students will not have not to wear masks when they attend school on Monday.
