Mask Exemption Information

https://coronavirus-download.utah.gov/Governor/State-Public-Health-Order-UPHO-2020-11-v.2.pdf


Face coverings are required of all students, employees, and visitors due to the Public Health Order issued by the Utah Department of Health (see link above). This order provides for exemptions for very specific reasons. For parents who believe that these exemptions are applicable to their children, there is the Mask Exemption Form (see link at bottom). The request must be completed by a licensed physician and then presented to a committee of representatives of the Davis School District Risk Management and Nursing Departments for approval. This committee will ensure that the request is within the scope of the Public Health Order. Prior to approval of the exemption request, the individual in question must wear a mask when in a school building. Those who receive an exemption may be more susceptible to both COVID-19 spread and potential quarantine as that student will not have the same level of protection as those who wear face mask.

Strategies We Can Use to Help Students Wear Masks

These Suggestions Are From Utah's COVID-19 School Manual


  • Try to always be positive when you talk about ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and wearing face coverings. This is a scary time for students. Students are likely to practice health behaviors to help others.
  • Try to frame prevention as something positive we can do to reduce everyone’s risk, without letting students be scared.
  • Consider asking parents, caregivers, and guardians to practice wearing cloth face coverings with students at home before the first day of school. If they show students how to use face coverings correctly and help them get used to wearing one before they have to in school, students may be more comfortable using one on the first day.
  • Make sure there is someone to help students put on and adjust face coverings if students need help. Teachers and employees should wash or sanitize their hands before and after they help students with face coverings. Teachers and employees should ALWAYS wear a face covering when they are in close contact with students.
  • Post signs in classrooms and in the hall to remind students how to wear a face covering correctly. You may want to use pictures of popular influencers or characters your students are interested in to promote or model how to use a cloth face covering.
  • Remind students about face coverings during daily announcements, in the school newspaper, and any other medium students are likely to engage with. Make sure communication is written in plain language and available in different languages.
  • You may want to include how to correctly use, take off, and wash a face covering in back-to-school materials.
  • Play games or do fun activities to teach students how to wear a face covering.
  • Use some art materials or other creative ways to help students understand how face coverings help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
  • Read or share stories so students know what changes to expect at school.
