State health department says schools should consider masking again

The New York State Department of Health recommended on Thursday that schools return to masking.

Not solely because of COVID-19, but because of the triple threat communities are facing with RSV and influenza cases higher-than-normal this time of year.


Beyond masking, state health officials are asking families to stay up to date on vaccines, washing hands frequently, and staying home if you’re not feeling well.

Pediatricians say the case numbers across the region has put the healthcare system in a severe state of stress.
