SAN ANTONIO – Northside Independent School District is relaxing its mask requirements starting next week.
The district will no longer enforce a mask mandate as of Monday, Oct. 11.
In an email to parents, the district says it still strongly encourages mask use.
Northside ISD said the decision results from local COVID-19 numbers declining and metrics improving for a number of weeks.
The district says it will continue to monitor cases and is prepared to reinstate the mask mandate district-wide or at specific campuses if confirmed COVID-19 cases rise significantly.
