Masks likely to remain in MMSD beyond public health mandate

Scott Girard:

The Madison Metropolitan School District expects to continue its mask mandate at least through the end of its second quarter Jan. 21.

Superintendent Carlton Jenkins sent a quarterly health and safety update to parents Thursday afternoon outlining that and other guidance updates. That would put the requirement nearly two months beyond the anticipated end of Public Health Madison & Dane County’s mask mandate, which expires Nov. 27.

PHMDC said in its order announcement last week it did not expect to issue a new mandate beyond that at this time.
