Emergency Measure Issued Requiring Mask In Schools


The Arizona Department of Health Services issued an emergency measure on Thursday requiring district and charter schools to immediately mandate that masks are worn on school campuses, on school buses and during school-associated activities.

The measure is directed at all students, faculty, staff, contractors, and visitors.

As part of this guidance, schools must implement COVID-19 mitigation strategies, based on the school benchmarks.

According to AZDHS, this measure aims to improve mitigation measures on campuses and buses.

The emergency measure was issued after a Danish organization released a study showing masks are not effective at stopping the spread of the virus.
