(Rochester, PA) The Rochester School Board met Monday night for a work session.  Superintendent, Dr. Jane Bovalino, along with the board and administrators discussed a plan to reintroduce a masking mandate within the district.  A two week mandate was first suggested, followed by a month, and finally an agreement was made to mandate masks until further notice.  The decision was based on rising numbers of Covid cases within the district staff and students, as well as numbers reflecting the general area.  Masking had been optional at Rochester after the state mandate was lifted in early December.
