PULASKI COUNTY, Ky. (FOX 56) – School districts in Kentucky are welcoming students returning from winter vacation in hopes that omicron will be left behind.

Pulaski County officials say their positive COVID-19 cases are low at this time, so masks will be optional for students and staff.

District security measures take the form of proactivity. Students can choose between in-person or virtual learning, and testing sites are widely available from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. on weekdays.

Pulaski County Superintendent Patrick Richardson insists on being proactive on illness.

“I recommend if they think they might be feeling sick, I would encourage them to come to this clinic and get tested,” Richardson said.

Richardson also noted that students who choose the distance learning option must meet the attendance requirements sent by the state in order to participate.
