- Masks are required for students and staff on school buses
- Masks are required for students and staff in health offices/areas of schools
- Masks are not required when outdoors or when eating
- Masks are "strongly recommended" for students in grades K-6 when indoors
- Masks are "strongly recommended" for any unvaccinated staff and any unvaccinated students in grades 7-12
- Districts and schools are highly encouraged to maintain or establish a robust plan for COVID-19 testing in schools, including both diagnostic testing and screening (pooled) testing for students and staff.
