GROSSE POINTE, Mich. – In a 6-1 vote, the Grosse Pointe Public Schools Board of Education adopted new COVID-19 protocols, which brought out a divided community to Monday night’s board meeting.
The board voted to follow CDC guidance that said 3 feet of social distancing is acceptable in lieu of 6 feet. In addition, students who are deemed to be in close contact with a student who tested positive for COVID will have to quarantine for 10 days instead of 14 days.
