LOS ANGELES—Students at Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) are required to wear higher-grade, non-cloth masks starting Monday, Jan. 24.

Students must now wear “well-fitting, non-cloth masks with a nose wire” at all times, indoors and outdoors. All employees were already required to wear surgical-grade masks.

District officials said they will continue to provide masks to students and employees at school sites, as needed. And, as with the previous masking requirements, the mask requirements do not apply to people with mask exemptions.

The district has also extended weekly COVID-19 testing, regardless of vaccination status, through the end of February.

The weekly testing for students and employees was previously going to be required through the end of January, then required only of unvaccinated people. But it will now continue for everyone through February.
