AAPVT Feedback on Return to School Guidance

We fully support the administration’s emphasis on getting students in-person full-time this year and with the recommendation that schools require universal masking of all students and staff regardless of vaccination status in the first few weeks of school.

Today’s announcement of the recommendation for schools to drop masking once 80% of the eligible student population has begun the vaccine series was a surprise to us. Although we appreciate the effort to get  young people vaccinated, we have a few concerns about the practical implementation of this and hope these can be addressed in the advisory memo you will be sending to schools this week.
