CDC quietly removed guidance for when schools should scrap masks and other COVID-19 precautions

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has altered its guidance for COVID-19 prevention in schools by removing a section that discussed when to get rid of precautions such as masks.

While updates to the CDC's 'Guidance for COVID-19 Prevention in K-12 Schools' are usually announced at the top of the site, it failed to mention the recent change that was originally set in place on August 5.

The full sentence that was removed read: 'The guidance is intended to help administrators and local health officials select appropriate, layered prevention strategies and understand how to safely transition learning environments out of COVID-19 pandemic precautions as community transmission of COVID-19 reaches low levels or stops.'
