Governor Pritzker has announced the following:
"I’m also extremely pleased to say that because the CDC has recommended that masks are needed only in areas of high transmission, the State of Illinois will move forward to remove our school mask mandate, effective Monday. We will recommend that all school districts follow CDC guidance and will update our existing guidance in the coming days."
Per the Governor's announcement, masks are optional for all schools and school districts starting Monday, Feb. 28.
