Pima County Mask Mandate
On December 21, 2021, the Pima County Board of Supervisors adopted Resolution 2021-87, which mandates face coverings in all indoor spaces where six feet of social distance cannot be maintained. The goal of the resolution is to educate and promote best practices to mitigate the spread of COVID in our community.
It is important to note that per the Resolution, “Parents or guardians are responsible for ensuring that children between the ages of 5 and 17 wear appropriate face coverings as required.”
There are two exemptions to the Resolution:
- Any child younger than five years old. Additionally, children younger than 2 years old must not wear a mask because of the risk of suffocation.
- Anyone with a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability that prevents safely wearing a mask. A person is not required to provide documentation demonstrating that the person cannot medically tolerate wearing a face covering.
MUSD continues to strongly recommend face coverings while indoors regardless of vaccination status. We look forward to our continued partnership with our families as we navigate the impacts of COVID.
