Clarification regarding "gaiters": (please keep in mind that information is ever changing, we update and change with it, this is an important mindset to follow as we move forward in this school year) RSU #34 relies on the guidance of expert organizations such as the CDC. Masks help stop the spread of COVID-19 to others. Many staff and students ask about the effectiveness and allowability of “gaiters” as an alternative to traditional face masks; gaiters have received quite a bit of attention in the media lately. The current CDC guidance is to choose masks that: *have two or more layers of washable, breathable fabric *completely cover your nose and mouth *fit snugly against the sides of your face and don’t have gaps *do NOT have exhalation valves or vents which allow virus particles to escape https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/about-face-coverings.html There are many types of gaiters. If a gaiter meets all of the above criteria, it may be used in RSU #34 under the current guidance. If your gaiter does not meet all of the above criteria, please choose a mask that does, or we can provide a disposable mask. With questions, please contact your school nurse or school administrator. view image
