CDPH K-12 Masking Q&A

Butte County Public Health will align school masking measures with the state and shift to strongly recommending indoor masking requirements at childcare sites and K-12 schools beginning March 12. School districts may continue to require masking at schools and during school activities and are encouraged to consult with teachers, staff, parents and students as they consider the appropriate safety protections for their school community, recognizing that many individuals may want to continue additional protections. 

School Closures

The role of Butte County Public Health (BCPH) is to provide COVID-19 information and resources to schools as new guidelines are released by the California Department of Public Health. BCPH does not have enforcement authority over schools and does not have authority to close schools. All schools are required by the State to have a COVID-19 operational plan, which should be available on your school website or by request.

What determines a school closure?

The most recent guidance for school closures was included in the CDPH COVID-19 and Reopening In-Person Instruction Framework & Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools in California, 2020-2021 School Year . This guidance was issued in January of 2021 and has not been updated.
