LAUSD to Lift Outdoor Mask Mandate for Students, Staff Today

After initially resisting county guidance regarding mask-wearing outdoors, the Los Angeles Unified School District today dropped its COVID-19 mandate that students and staff wear face coverings while outside on campuses.

Superintendent Alberto Carvalho made the announcement late Friday, posting revised district guidance online. The new rules state that “outdoor masking will be optional for all individuals in Los Angeles Unified schools effective February 22, 2022.”

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health last Wednesday lifted its outdoor mask-wearing mandate for mega-events and for schools and child care centers, citing plummeting COVID hospitalization numbers and an apparent end to the winter surge of virus infections.

But Carvalho took some heat when the LAUSD initially opted to keep the outdoor masking rule in place through the end of last week. He said the district wanted to take a few days to transition to the new rule and properly inform labor partners, parents and staff.
