Masks for students and teachers will be mandatory in counties with more than 20 reported COVID-19 cases when public schools resume in-person classes this fall, according to new public health guidelines released by Texas state education officials Tuesday.
School districts must offer daily on-campus instruction for all students who want it, but any parent may request that their child be offered virtual instruction from any school district that offers it, under the guidelines issued by the Texas Education Agency.
These new guidelines are modified from a draft that the agency accidentally posted last month that included few safety mandates for school districts, consistent with Abbott’s hands-off approach to the pandemic at the time.
