— Insider Paper (@TheInsiderPaper) February 9, 2022
The statewide mask requirement for K-12 schools in Massachusetts will be lifted at the end of the month, Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) Commissioner Jeffrey C. Riley announced Wednesday.
The school mask mandate in Massachusetts will come to an end on Feb. 28, one week after the end of February vacation.
At that time, DESE and the Department of Public Health recommend students and faculty wear masks in certain scenarios consistent with DESE’s COVID-19 protocols.
“Given the low extremely low risk for young people, the widespread availability and the proven effectiveness of vaccines and the distribution of accurate test protocols and tests, it is time to give our kids a sense of normalcy and lift the mask mandate on a statewide basis for schools,” Baker said.
School districts no longer need to request a waiver from DESE to remove masks in school buildings where 80% of staff and students are vaccinated.
