Frequently Asked Questions
Both the MN Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are currently recommending universal indoor masking for all students (age 2 and older), staff, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status because of the highly contagious Delta variant. Further, they have recommended individuals wear a mask when there is high or substantial transmission in the county. As a result, we are monitoring Hennepin County's status week through the CDC data: https://covid.cdc.gov/
County transmission levels assist in determining if masks are still needed. We will be keeping a close eye on this, along with future public health guidance and transmission within our school buildings, to determine when we may be able to change our masking procedures.
