In a letter to the community, Snell said his decision was based on the reduced number of positive cases in the school and community. Snell said the area had had a 0.48% positivity rate over the last ten days.

Snell said Geneva City Schools will issue a new mask mandate if there is a significant increase in the number of positive cases or close contact quarantines.
