Making masks mandatory at all times is one step toward helping address the reservations that still exist regarding reopening school buildings.”The union is calling on state leaders to make masks mandatory indoors at all times during the school day, in an effort to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in buildings that reopen for in-person instruction.
