School District Will Not Be Requiring Masks for Student Returns - Washington Unified School Board President Sarah Kirby-Gonzalez stated, “Washington Unified School District (WUSD) will not require masking following the winter recess. WUSD takes the health and safety of students and staff seriously, following all health guidance from Yolo Public Health which currently strongly recommends masking for all Yolo County residents.” Masking is currently strongly recommended for individuals but it has not been recommended that WUSD enforce a mask policy at this time. As such, WUSD is not requiring masks when we return from break but has shared Yolo Public Health’s mask recommendation and sent home test kits so students and staff can test before returning to school after break.
