Frequently Asked Questions

How long will masks be required?

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/covid-data-tracker/#county-view

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.
