On February 25, 2022, the Center for Disease Control (“CDC”) updated its guidance on wearing masks in schools and on buses. In summary, the CDC is no longer recommending that all people, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks in schools and on buses in counties with low or medium COVID-19 community levels. However, in counties that have high COVID-19 community levels, the CDC still recommends that all people, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks indoors and on buses.

The CDC has produced a map of the United States on its website, showing each county’s current COVID-19 community level. To view the CDC’s map and to check the COVID-19 community level of your county and whether masking is required, click here.
