COVID-19 Information

The School Board voted on March 14 to follow the CDC recommendations regarding masking in our schools. This means Austin Public Schools will no longer recommend universal indoor mask-wearing in our schools and early education settings in areas with a low or medium COVID-19 Community Level.

COVID-19 Community Levels are a new tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at the number of hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and new COVID-19 cases in an area.

Low Medium High

 

Note: People may choose to mask at any time. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask. If you are immunocompromised, learn more about how to protect yourself
