INDIANAPOLIS — Schools in Indiana that have mask requirements will no longer need to track close-contact coronavirus cases.

The Indiana Department of Health on Friday sent new guidelines to schools, among the changes is the end of contract tracing and individual student reporting for schools that require masks.

Parents in those schools will now get a notification if someone in the class tests positive, or was in close contact.

Schools in the state that don’t require masks will continue to have to track close contacts, and report on individual student health.  They will also have to continue to quarantine students outside of school.
