Masking Update: Effective February 16, 2022

As California experiences a downturn in certain health metrics, including case rates, test positivity, and hospitalizations, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) are reassessing and adjusting their health and safety guidelines, specific to schools and mega events. Starting tomorrow, February 16th, masks are no longer required while outdoors for K-12 Schools, Youth Sports, or in Childcare settings, per the LACDPH Health Order update (Issue Date: Feb. 15, 2022). Masking is still recommended at crowded outdoor events. All individuals on campus will continue wearing masks indoors, but will no longer need to wear one while outside - entering/exiting school, during outdoor physical education, on the playground, etc.

California will spend the next two weeks further evaluating COVID-19 data and conditions before making a determination on the future of masks in schools, the state’s top health official said Monday. The CDPH plans to provide additional information on February 28th. To review the full Health Order Update, please click link: February 15, 2022 Health Order Update
