COVID-19 Safety News: Mask Policy Changes

The Cambridge Public Schools have announced that masking will be optional in school buildings, except in nurses' offices, effective Monday, March 14, 2022. In a video message from Superintendent of Schools Dr. Victoria Greer and Chief Health Officer Derrick Neal, Cambridge Department of Public Health, Mr. Neal said “I would like to emphasize that dropping the mask mandate does not eliminate masks. It makes them optional. We are very supportive of people's individual choices about mask-wearing.”

Please refer to the guidance in this brief City of Cambridge video when selecting an effective mask. Visit our volunteer resource page on COVID-19 safety or the announcement by the Cambridge Public Schools regarding the policy change.
