Illinois Federation Of Teachers Support CDC’s Latest Recommendations

The Illinois Federation of Teachers says it is supporting the CDC’s latest recommendations on masking in schools. The CDC issued updated guidelines Tuesday recommending indoor masks for teachers, staff, students, and visitors to all schools. Illinois health officials say they will be following CDC guidelines in the state, but have stopped short of issuing a mandate. The IFT represents 103-thousand teachers and paraprofessionals in Pre-K through 12th grade schools throughout the state.
