Effective immediately, any person over the age of 2 must wear masks at all times indoors in pre-K to 12 school buildings regardless of vaccination status, according to New York State Department of Health Commissioner Howard Zucker.
This includes all students, personnel, teachers, administrators, contractors and visitors.
Those with medical or developmental conditions that prevent them from wearing a mask may be exempted with proper documentation.
When eating, drinking, singing or playing a wind instrument, masks may be removed, but individuals must be spaced 6 feet apart.
