PENNSYLVANIA TEACHERS’ UNIONS WANT MASKS IN SCHOOLS

Pennsylvania’s two teachers unions are calling for mask mandates in schools. The Pennsylvania State Education Association and the Pennsylvania chapter of the American Federation of Teachers say masking up is essential to keeping in-person learning going all year. Officials added that this is why they strongly encourage every district in Pennsylvania to require students and staff to wear masks in school buildings as part of a multi-layered approach. They also call for measures like social distancing and promoting vaccinations where possible.
