Gov. Cuomo and the CDC agree schools should continue to use facemasks for at least the remainder of the school year.

The agency says all schools "should implement and layer prevention strategies and should prioritize universal and correct use of masks and physical distancing."

Also, even though kids ages 12 to 15 are now able to get vaccinated, the agency says they will not be fully vaccinated before the end of the current year.
