Reminders on Proper Masking

Particularly in the school setting, it is critical that proper masks be worn at all times, and that the masks are properly worn. Guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control provide that masks should have two or more layers of breathable fabric and should NOT have exhalation valves or vents. Masks should completely cover the nose and mouth and fit snugly with no gaps. Following is a simple summary of the guidelines from the CDC. Please let us know if you have any questions.
