Mankato Area School Board voted to rescind Policy 81 COVID 19 Face Coverings, during the June 21 meeting. This formally ends the face covering requirements.

At this time, MAPS will continue to follow the guidance from CDC regarding face coverings. As per Executive Order 21-23 vaccinated people are not required to wear face coverings in most places. Individuals who have not been vaccinated are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings in indoor public spaces. 

MAPS will continue to monitor guidance from CDC, MDH, and executive orders to determine if a future policy is needed to replace the rescinded policy.
