The Archdiocese of Boston announced Wednesday, the same day the Massachusetts governor lifted a state school mask mandate, that school mask mandates will be eliminated at its schools.
“The Archdiocese of Boston is eliminating all school masking mandates on behalf of all Archdiocesan parochial schools and Archdiocesan-related Catholic schools,” Thomas Carroll, Superintendent of Catholic Schools of the Boston archdiocese, announced Feb. 9.
“We are proud of our decision to keep our Catholic schools open and doing so in a way that has kept our students, faculty and staff safe during the global pandemic,” he added.
The end of the archdiocesan school mask mandate will take effect Feb. 28, giving schools “time to adjust their policies and communicate with parents and other affected parties.”
