Louisville, KY – According to the health officials, under the latest guidance issued by the CDC, children under 12 whom vaccines haven’t been authorized for should wear a mask inside the classroom.
The Kentucky Department of Education is encouraging districts to follow the guidance.
The CDC also recommends students return to the classroom for in-person learning. Dr. Glass believes school districts will provide multiple options for families, but that decision is left for schools to decide.
The Kentucky Department of Education says each district will be left to decide on the face mask policy, along with whether they will provide a virtual learning option for students too.
