MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Public Schools announced Tuesday night, April 19, that masks will be mandatory for students and staff in all district buildings beginning Wednesday, April 20.
MPS says the decision was made after determining a "significant transmission of the virus within the city of Milwaukee."
In a statement on their website, the school system says the district has the option to revert back to a mask-optional policy if it is determined that there is not a significant risk of transmission within the city or school district.
Masks will continue to be available for everyone within district buildings.
