Masks will be mandatory in Texas schools this fall; districts must offer in-person and remote learning
Masks will be required in Texas public schools this fall for children aged 10 and up, according to guidelines released Tuesday by the Texas Education Agency, The Texas Tribune reports.
All school districts must offer daily on-campus learning as well as remote lessons for parents who choose to keep kids at home.
The agency also issued guidelines for safety:
"The guidelines include recommendations for school districts attempting to stop the spread of the virus. Schools 'should attempt' to have hand sanitizer or hand washing stations at each entrance and are encouraged to supervise students in handwashing for at least 20 seconds twice a day. And 'where feasible without disrupting the educational experience,' schools should encourage students to practice social distancing and consider placing student desks six feet apart."
The TEA posted the document on Twitter.
