On February 25 the CDC released new guidance stating masks are no longer necessary unless the local community is experiencing a high level of transmission or the healthcare system is seeing a significant increase in hospitalizations. Maricopa County is one of four Arizona counties that have dropped below the high-risk threshold and is currently in the “Medium” risk category.
This means that effective Monday, February 28, masks are no longer required in our schools or on our school buses, regardless of vaccination status. Students and staff may continue to wear a mask if they so choose.
