Open Letter to the Education Community from the Dallas County Medical Society - August 27, 2021

DCMS continues to work at supporting our member physicians in fighting the spread of COVID-19. As students and staff have begun to return to the classroom during this most recent surge, members have asked for additional tools to assist them in working with local schools and districts in Dallas County regarding masking policies. DCMS has developed a statement regarding adoption of the AAP and CDC guidelines for masking and other prevention recommendations that you are welcome to use, as needed, in your volunteer efforts outside of your practice and in our community.
