DPI recommends universal masking in schools for fall 2021

The state Department of Public Instruction (DPI) and Department of Health Services (DHS) have released guidance for the 2021-22 school year when it comes to the prevention, investigation and control of COVID in K-12 schools. These are not requirements, but statewide guidance.

The DPI recommends to school districts that all students older than 2 years and all school staff wear face masks at school regardless of vaccination status (unless medical or developmental conditions prohibit use). This is in alignment with the AAP, CDC, and DHS guidance for schools.
