Governor: Students Won't Need To Mask Up Before Return To Class

Governor Charlie Baker is not planning any immediate changes to coronavirus rules as Massachusetts sees a rise in cases. 

Baker says there are statewide rules set based on the current situation, and there are no plans to change those rules or policies. 

However, the governor says if local communities feel the need to pursue other strategies, that option remains available.

He says the increase in cases is not as concerning because of the state's high vaccination rate.

Just this week, Boston announced that it would require students to mask up since not all students are vaccinated.
