As school districts around Wyoming wrestle with what accommodations need to be put in place for the coming school year, Governor Gordon’s administration has announced that they have plans to deliver ½ million face coverings to school districts around the state. The cloth face coverings are washable, and will help school districts meet safety needs for reopening schools this fall. According to current state public health orders, face coverings are required in schools when six feet of physical distancing is not practical. This needed resource is being distributed in early August to school districts across the state through the partnership between Wyoming Department of Health/Wyoming Office of Homeland Security and county emergency management. Two of the three scenarios for the 2020/2021 school year call for students to be in face-to-face classes at least part of the time. The state department of health recommends people wear cloth face coverings in public settings where it is not possible or reasonable to stay physically apart, including students in their classes.
