Masks in schools: The California Department of Public Health announced today that the state will reassess masks in schools on February 28. The state will review cases, hospitalizations, vaccine rates and trends and make an announcement at that time. Local public health and local school districts are not authorized to change the state-issued mandate. Once the state provides more information in two weeks it will be shared. Dr. Mark Ghaly, California Secretary of Health and Human Services, stated in today’s message that it is likely that the change will go to masks being recommended rather than required based on data. More information about the State mask order can be found at https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/guidance-for-face-coverings.aspx
