CDC: Vaccinated students can skip masks in fall – UPI.com (Me: Lack of clear policy endangers students, staffs and families!)

Students in grades K-12 who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 can go without masks at school this fall, according to new guidelines released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Their classmates who have not had their shots, however, still should wear masks, the CDC said.

The new guidelines, which are recommendations and not requirements, come after the CDC cleared the COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna for use in children ages 12 and older in May. Still, many school districts across the country already have lifted mask mandates ahead of the start of the 2021-22 school year, agency officials acknowledged.

    1. Trusting that people will be truthful about vaccinations is foolish – until everyone in a school is vaccinated – mask up!
