CDC officials recommend K-12 schools to mask up indoors
July 28, 2021
The CDC just announced it is recommending anyone, even vaccinated people, in K-12 schools to wear masks indoors. The announcement comes after Gov. Doug Ducey issued an executive order that bans school districts from enforcing a mask mandate. However, per federal law, mask mandates are still being enforced on school buses.
Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman joins “Arizona Horizon” to discuss the recent guidance from the CDC as Arizona school open for in-person instruction for the fall semester.
“Their hands are tied; essentially, the governor took away the local decision-making authority from local school leaders,” Hoffman said. “Those who are under 12 cannot be vaccinated yet … this is causing a lot of concern for families.”
