AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Closed by the surge in COVID cases that’s being driven by the delta variant, Taliaferro County schools are announcing their plans to reopen.

Students will return Aug. 30 but will follow an “A/B” mixed in-person and at-home schedule that will not have them all on campus at the same time.

Students will follow that schedule through Sept. 17.

After a break, students will return under a regular schedule on Oct. 11.

The district is planning a vaccination clinic Wednesday. Students can go to the district office to get their shot from 3:30-5:30 p.m.

In Burke County

Burke County students will return to class as planned on Aug. 30 with mandatory masks inside facilities and on buses.

The virtual option for students also ends Monday.

School leaders say they have reviewed data and feel it’s safe to return.
