“At this time, Columbus City Schools does not require students or staff to get the COVID-19 vaccination,” said CCS Communications Director Jaqueline Bryant. “We encourage students and staff to get the vaccination as an added layer to the health and safety protocols we already have in place.”

As of Sept. 2, CCS had 150 new positive COVID-19 cases with staff and students combined, and 1,539 students and 73 staff in isolation and or quarantine.
