Nearly 100 percent of students in Salt Lake City school districts have been wearing masks in class according to school officials. In August, Mayor Erin Mendenhall issued a mask mandate for students in grades K through 12 and principals were advised on how to enforce the mandate while respecting the dignity and autonomy of students. Anyone not wearing a mask has been offered one and advised of the benefits of wearing a mask. Students have not been prohibited from accessing in-person learning or activities if they declined to wear a mask. As of today (Wednesday), 58 students out of a total of over 21,000 in the district have tested positive for COVID-19.
