No date is set for the end of the school mask mandate. Governor JB Pritzker enacted the mask mandate for all staff and students in Illinois K through 12 schools in August. Pritzker said Tuesday that his office is looking for a downward trend in hospitalizations before the mandate will be lifted. The governor says his office is optimistic about removing the indoor mask mandate outside schools.
