Masks are now optional on Aspen School District buses, according to a Feb. 27 announcement from the district.

The change follows an update late last week from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: “Effective February 25, 2022, CDC does not require wearing of masks on buses or vans operated by public or private school systems, including early care and education/child care programs,” according to the CDC’s website.
