MADISON, Wis. — Madison Metropolitan School District extended its mask mandate until the first week of May.

MMSD said anyone who enters a school building will be required to mask up until then. Officials said medical consultants told them extending the mandate “was in the best interest of its students and staff.”

MMSD will have regular “metrics meetings” during the extended mandate to evaluate COVID-19 conditions and consult with medical advisers. Officials will update their decision on masking indoors by May 6.

Officials said their primary goal is to keep schools open so students can attend class in-person.
