Masking and Updated CDC Guidance
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced on May 17 that New York State will adopt the CDC's Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People, effective May 19.  New York State will adhere to CDC guidance requiring Pre-K to 12 schools, public transit, homeless shelters, correctional facilities, nursing homes, and healthcare settings to continue to follow our state's current COVID-19 related health and safety protocols.  This ultimately means that HCS must still require masks in all school facilities, even for fully-vaccinated students, faculty, staff members, and visitors.

Per the Interim Guidance for In Person Instruction at PreK to Grade 12 Schools During Public Health Emergency, any use of a school facility or grounds by the general public is subject to the same guidelines required during all other school operations.
