State Health Officials Recommend Masking in Schools

State health officials are recommending indoor masking in schools.

The letter to schools from outgoing Health Commissioner Dr. Mary Bassett is not a mandate.

It also outlines safety measures for students, such as staying home when sick and washing hands well.

Bassett also recommends staying up-to-date on flu and COVID-19 vaccines.

The letter comes as flu, RSV, and COVID infections continue to rise in children.
