San Diego Unified to require masks indoors at schools, offices starting on Monday

Starting July 18, the requirement goes into effect at San Diego Unified schools and offices.

SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Unified School District announced it will be requiring students and staff to wear masks indoors beginning on Monday.

The district notified families of the change in a letter on Friday. Masks will now be required indoors at offices, summer school and other district programs.

In a letter to parents, San Diego Unified said in part:

"As a District, since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been intentional in implementing strategies to keep our community safe and reduce absences due to illness – all in service of our students, staff, and community."

The change comes after San Diego County ascended into "High" COVID-19 activity level.

"As a reminder, the District established criteria approved by our board on May 24, 2022 that, if reached, would require a return to mandatory indoor masking. This week, one of those criteria was reached, with San Diego County entering the ‘high’ COVID-19 community level," the district said.

The district said they would monitor COVID-19 community level according to the CDC and County data.

There is no San Diego County mask mandate pending.
