Illinois Schools to Require Masks When School Starts

After the CDC issued new guidelines for face mask at schools on Tuesday, the Illinois Federation of Teachers (IFT) announced they agreed with the federal health agency. Due to Illinois cases increasing rapidly and the spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant, the union representing teachers feel face mask is there best decision to take extra safety protocols for all staff members and students. They also advise school districts and institutions to engage in Illinois to take other safety measures. IFT wants a comprehensive layered approach which addresses the immediate safety needs of all their students.
