BOISE, Idaho — Ada County schools will require students, staff and visitors to wear masks when classes come back into session.

Central District Health clarifying their previous mask order to make it clear that schools are included.

The mask order will be stricter for K-12 schools, as masks will be required even in situations where students can socially distance. The only exceptions -- people alone in their office with the door closed, teachers providing instruction from at least ten feet away and student athletes in practices or games.

The board also decided to drop the child care centers from the order with the hope of better clarifying the term.
