Face coverings and masks in schools


Isle of Anglesey County Council continues to work closely with schools to ensure they are as safe and Covid-secure as possible when learners return next week.

In light of the World Health Organisation’s recent announcement and the Welsh Government Chief Medical Officer’s advice, we strongly recommended the use of face coverings where social distancing cannot be maintained in secondary schools (e.g. situations where physical distancing between contact groups is difficult to maintain) as an additional risk-reducing measure.

We already strongly recommend their use by children and young people above the age of 11, who use designated home-to-school transport.
