Milford to lift mask requirement in schools 'when it is safe and appropriate': Superintendent

Local officials in Milford said they will continue to follow guidance from the CT Dept. of Public Health as they decide when to lift the mask mandate for schools in Milford.

As Gov. Ned Lamont recommended that the state mask mandate for schools come to an end on Feb. 28, municipalities and school districts will soon have the final say on whether to wear a mask in the classroom.

"It is our desire to remove the mask requirement across the district when it is safe and appropriate to do so. As such, our goal is to work to determine the best approach for our community, while ensuring those decisions are made keeping a focus on Federal and State guidance, public health metrics, mitigation strategies in use, and the ever-changing pandemic environment," the Milford School Superintendent said in a letter to parents and teachers Tuesday.

South Windsor lifts town mask mandate order for businesses

The town of South Windsor announced Wednesday that it is lifting its mask mandate effective immediately. 

The town will continue to require masks in all town buildings and said they  strongly recommend residents wear masks in public regardless of vaccination status.

"With the abundance of home test kits available and no reporting mechanism to track these cases, it is impossible to gauge community spread of COVID-19 in our Town, making it difficult to determine when to lift the mandate," said officials.
