As the number of COVID-19 transmissions throughout California and the rest of the United States continues to climb, the Berkeley Unified School District has decided to require that students wear masks while they are inside the school.
In response to a surge in the number of cases of COVID-19, a school district in Northern California has mandated that face masks be worn indoors at all times by students, instructors, and visitors.
It was stated on Friday that the new regulation will go into effect on Monday. The announcement was made in response to recommendations made by health professionals.
As you can see up above, the Director of Public Health, Lisa Hernandez, sent a letter to the District Superintendent, Brent Stephens, earlier this week, encouraging the district to make use of its jurisdiction to reinstitute a mask mandate. We are a non-health-related organization, so we need to rely on the expertise of these specialists.
All children who are on school grounds are subject to a regulation that goes into effect during the last weeks of the school year. The ban applies to all of the school’s sponsored indoor activities, except events that take place on campus, such as the commencement ceremony.
