May is National Mental Health Awareness Month

May Mental Health Awareness Month with Green Ribbon
Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental illness. During May, NAMI joins the national movement to raise awareness about mental health. Each year we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for policies that support people with mental illness and their families.

After the last two years of pandemic living, many people are realizing that stress, isolation, and uncertainty have taken a toll on their well-being. The goal is to provide foundational knowledge about mental health & mental health conditions and information about what people can do if their mental health is a cause for concern.  If you or someone you know is in need, please reach out to someone.

Mask Mandate

The Alabama Mask Mandate is set to expire on   April 9, 2021. However, all Choctaw County   Public School System employees and students will be required to wear a mask while at work or school.  Governor Kay Ivey has indicated that she will not extend Alabama’s Mask Mandate past April  9, 2021. She is, however, encouraging people to continue wearing masks. She has stated that  “masks remain one of the most successful tools   we have to keep folks safe from COVID-19.”  The CDC still recommends that individuals, whether vaccinated or not, wear masks to prevent the virus’s spread. We need to keep encouraging  frequent handwashing, continuous cleaning, and proper social   distancing.  While this is a difficult decision to make, I take   my job very serious when it comes to the safety and protection of our students, faculty, and staff members. Therefore, Choctaw County Public Schools will require all employees and students to wear masks while at school, work, or attending school-sponsored functions or events.

As of 3/29/2022, the Choctaw County School System will no longer have a Mask MANDATE due to COVID 19.  We do still encourage mask-wearing as "recommended but not required".  Mask wearing has long been recommended by the CDC and Alabama Department of Public Health as a means to help deter or mitigate COVID 19 as well as other airborne illnesses.  As it stands now, the Mask MANDATE will be lifted, but if there is an upswing in the number of cases in our schools or communities, or if the CDC or Alabama Department of Public Health issues a recommendation, we may have to reinstate the mandate.

Please stay safe and remain vigilant with good hand washing, covering your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, and staying home if you are ill.

Yours in Health,

Dorothy Banks
