Jun. 7—The Manchester School District has changed its rules for masks.

Effective immediately, masks are only required when moving about the building, according to a Facebook post from the district.

"Masks are not required for staff or students while in classrooms," the note reads. "Anyone who chooses can still wear a mask at all times."

The decision — which was approved by the school committee — was made in consultation with the city's Health Department, which considered decreases in community transition of COVID-19.

"Physical distancing and other layered mitigations remain in place in all school buildings," the note reads.
