How does this affect schools?
Masks are required in schools.
What about students with exemptions?
Exemptions are still in place for individuals with medical, mental health, and disability conditions that prevents them from wearing a face covering. This includes:
- Individuals who have Individualized Education Programs (“IEP”) that would necessitate exempting the individual from wearing a Face-Covering; and
- Individuals who are hearing impaired, or communicating with an individual who is hearing impaired, where the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication.
