Update on Mask Requirement in K-12 Schools

Arizona Department of Education Seal
We wanted to share information we received from the Arizona Department of Health Services today in light of Governor Ducey’s executive order relaxing COVID-19 restrictions. AZDHS Emergency Measure 2020-04 is still in effect, requiring masks in all K-12 schools. Masking is one of the top mitigation strategies for safe in-person learning as recommended by the CDC.

Masks must be worn on school campuses, on school buses and during school-associated activities by all students, faculty, staff, contractors, and visitors.

Thank you,
Arizona Department of Education
