“Since children under 12 years of age are still not yet eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and the  vaccine will most likely not be available for this age group until winter of 2021, most children are still at  risk for Coronavirus infection and transmitting the infection to others.

“Both the American Academy of  Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend masking in schools.

“The  Florida Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (FCAAP) supports the continued, universal use of  masks and physical distancing in schools by all individuals including students, faculty members, and staff  through the end of the 2021-2022 school year.

“Masking should be in addition to the continuation of  testing protocols in schools to mitigate the spread of infection. Finally, and most importantly, FCAAP recommends that all vaccine eligible children, faculty, and staff in schools should be vaccinated”
