CT Teachers' Union Applauds CDC's Move To Encourage Masks For All in Schools

The Centers for Disease and Control Prevention has issued a new recommendation for schools as communities prepare to head back in-person amid the spread of the delta variant. The agency encourages everyone in schools K-12 to remain fully masked indoors regardless of vaccination status. And the Connecticut Education Association has already applauded the move. The teachers’ union said keeping masks in place could mean a less likely return to the revolving door of hybrid and remove learning.
