Mask Mandate
KBA-01633-P7Z9H2
Question
Why are masks mandated and not recommended?
Answer
Recent CDC guidance requires the use of face coverings in indoor public areas, even for vaccinated individuals, when there are “substantial” or “high” levels of transmission in the county.
Additional Comments
The Delta variant has caused an increase in cases of COVID-19 across the country, and we're doing everything we can to prevent a spike on our campus. We also don't have a clear picture of the percentage of our students that are vaccinated (to help with that, self-report here). What we do know is that only 29% of 18-24 year olds in Winona County are currently fully vaccinated. In comparison, the minimum starting point would ideally be a 70% vaccination rate.
