- Masks must be worn whenever possible. This includes when persons are engaging in low-impact activity- such as stretching.
- Teachers must wear their masks unless a lawful exemption applies- for example if communicating with a Deaf or hard of hearing student or if the teacher is engaging in strenuous exercise alongside the students.
