SkillsUSA Massachusetts - Updated COVID-19 Information & Masking Policy 8-1-2022
All schools are required to be in-person, full-time, five days a week. Masks are no longer required indoors or while using school transportation. However, school districts may decide whether to lift or maintain local mask requirements on buses or vans. Vaccines have been approved for everyone 5 years old and over and schools can participate in three state-funded testing programs.
SkillsUSA Massachusetts conferences are planned as in-person events for the 2022-2023 school year. District Qualifying Events will continue to be presented as on-line qualifying exams. Every SkillsUSA participant is expected to maintain an environment of mutual respect for all individuals regardless of their individual decision on masking.
SkillsUSA Massachusetts reserves the right, at the discretion of the Executive Director and Board of Directors, to reinstate a mask mandate if an increase in COVID-19 cases or transmissions is detected and/or if it is required by local, state, or federal agencies.
