HARRISBURG – The Wolf Administration is trying to make it clear that masks are to be worn practically at all times by students in school, drawing complaints that school leaders must again change their preparations. The administration released additional guidance that clarifies that masks must be worn in school, even when students and educators are six feet apart. Exceptions are when students are six feet apart and eating or drinking or taking brief breaks, or when wearing a face-covering is unsafe to operate equipment or carry out a task. The order requiring universal face coverings in schools applies to all students, staff, and visitors age two and older while in school entities, including public K-12 schools, brick and mortar and cyber charter schools, private and parochial schools, and those in career and technical centers.
