Given current recommendations by the Florida Department of Health-Collier (FLDOH-Collier), all face coverings, including gaiters/buffs, should be a minimum of two layers. For gaiters/buffs, this may mean doubling over by the wearer.

This specific guidance came about as a result of consultation with our local medical experts and FLDOH-Collier.  It is another way our school communities are able to reduce the risk of transmission. Collier County Public Schools (CCPS) is extremely proud of our students and staff for adapting to all the health and safety procedures relating to COVID-19.  

It is important to note, throughout the pandemic, CCPS continues to reiterate health and safety measures may change based on guidance from the Florida Department of Education, Florida Department of Health-Collier, and/or the Centers for Disease Control.
