Chicago, Boston, and Atlanta this week joined the growing list of cities nationwide that will require students to wear masks when they return to the classroom next month as coronavirus cases are on the rise.
The U.S. saw nearly 44,000 new cases of COVID-19 on a daily basis over the last seven days – a more than 50 percent increase in the number of cases reported from the week prior, according to data by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The article goes on to state the following:
“Continuing to require masks will help make sure those in our school communities who are not yet eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, which encompasses the majority of our students, remain as safe as possible,” Chicago Public Schools said in a letter to parents this week.
Boston and Atlanta also announced this week that students and teachers in public schools will be required to ear a mask in class, on the bus, and will only be permitted to remove it while eating.
The big cities, along with the District of Columbia, join a growing list of states who are mandating masks for Kindergarten through 12th grade students.
The list includes California, Connecticut, Hawaii, New Mexico, New York, Virginia, and Washington. The city of Cleveland has called for a five-week mask order for students and teachers.
States like Iowa and Texas, have banned public school mask mandates, though blue cities within the states like Austin are encouraging kids to mask up.
Atlanta Public Schools, one of the nation’s first districts to begin its school year next month, will require masks for all students and teachers in school and on buses, the district announced Thursday. https://t.co/ZjMzJoXVW4
