Physicians Urged to Support Universal Mask Use with Local School Leaders

On Aug. 4, the MMA, along with the Minnesota Academy of Family Physicians and the Minnesota Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, sent out a statement to media across the state urging “all students, teachers, staff, and visitors in K-12 school buildings to wear masks indoors regardless of vaccination status.”

The recommendation follows recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Minnesota Department of Health.

MMA members can do their part by contacting their local school boards to show your support for this position. 

Many Minnesota schools begin operations in two to three weeks.
