PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Public Schools are requiring masks again on Friday, the district announced late Thursday night.
According to a Facebook post, the change is in response to COVID-19 infection levels rising in Allegheny County. The county is now at a medium community level.
All students, employees, and visitors will be required to wear a mask inside Pittsburgh Public Schools facilities beginning May 13.
Students and staff had a choice as to whether or not wear masks for two weeks before the reinforced mandate.
CAPA and Colfax, two Pittsburgh Public Schools, were closed this week due to COVID-19 case numbers.
It’s not clear if the district will reevaluate this decision at any point.
