(ALAMEDA COUNTY, Calif.) Students attending K-12 schools in Alameda County will not have to wear masks in the classroom as of March 11.

According to the press release, the county will no longer require masks for all K-12 students as of 11:59 p.m. on Friday, March 11.

"In general, we align with state K-12 schools and childcare guidance because it has prioritized in-person learning and relied on evidence to balance prevention and risk," the statement read. "In addition, we seek to limit confusion and minimize the patchwork of restrictions that can undermine overall efforts without always contributing to significant differences in health outcomes."
