Texas Education Agency Announces Updates to Public Health Guidance; TEA Also Provides Updates to COVID-19 Vaccine FAQ

On March 2, 2021, Governor Abbott issued Executive Order GA-34 which addresses the statewide wearing of face coverings (i.e., masks), which takes effect March 10, 2021. TEA’s authority to implement operational requirements for public schools remains in effect (e.g., TEA’s Public Health Guidance). 

As a result of the lifting of the order on masks, TEA has updated its Public Health Guidance. Under this updated guidance, a public school system’s current practices on masks may continue unchanged. Local school boards have full authority to determine their local mask policy.

TEA has also made updates related to surface cleaning requirements. 

Additionally, the Department of State Health Services announced today that educators and school support staff are eligible for vaccines effective immediately. 

03-02-2021  Today, Governor Abbott announced an executive order (GA-34) concerning several COVID-19 restrictions in Texas, including capacity and mask orders. The order is effective next Wednesday, March 10. School administrators have not seen the new orders or any associated documents, as they have not yet been released.

This will be a changing situation over the next several days as the school district receives guidance from our local government, the UIL, and the Texas Education Agency. There are also unanswered questions about what this means for quarantine guidelines and close contact for exposures. VVISD will continue to operate under all current guidelines until further notice.
