Vaccinated students, staff at Xaverian Brothers High School can go maskless after 80% threshold met

WESTWOOD, Mass. — Students and staff members at Xaverian Brothers High School, a local Catholic high school in Westwood, are no longer required to wear masks at the school after Xaverian cleared the 80% vaccinated threshold, school officials announced in a letter to families Thursday night.

All students and staff members who do not have proof of vaccination on file with the school are still required to wear a mask at all times while indoors except when eating, drinking or during designated mask breaks.
