Summary

She said data show COVID-19 infections have not been rampant in U.S. schools, but “we know masks do curb transmission.” What’s more, keeping track of who has had shots and who has not may be tough for schools.School districts that can set their own policies are taking different approaches.In Detroit public schools, everyone will likely be required to wear a mask unless an entire room is vaccinated. The district is expected to announce its decision later this week.“I’m just really concerned about (them) being inside a school building with lots and lots of kids with no masks on while they’re too young to be vaccinated,” Jedd said.Jacky Frechette, who has a son who’s vaccinated and a 4-year-old who isn’t, said every Madison student should be required to wear a mask rather than having different rules for the vaccinated and unvaccinated, especially when people can so easily lie about it.“It’s sad (wearing masks) has become so divisive that we’ve put our political thoughts and feelings above what experts say,” she said.___Associated Press writers Andrew DeMillo and Lindsey Tanner and contributed to this story.
