One study looked at data from schools in Arizona's Maricopa and Pima Counties after they resumed in-person learning in late July for the 2021-22 academic year.

The CDC found that the K-12 schools that did not have mask requirements at the beginning of the school year were 3.5 times more likely to have COVID outbreaks than schools that required all people, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask indoors from the first day of school. .

Of the 999 schools analyzed in the study, 21% had an early mask requirement, 30.9% enacted a mask requirement between nine and 17 days after the school year began, and 48% had no mask requirement.

Schools with early mask requirements had the lowest number of outbreaks. .

Authors looked at data from 520 counties that started school between July 1 and September 4 this year and had at least a full week of case data from the school year.

They only looked at counties where all the schools had the same mask policies.

Of the 520 counties, 198 had a school mask requirement and 322 did not. 

Researchers found that counties that had no mask requirements in their schools had a higher rate of pediatric COVID cases after the school year began than those schools that did have requirements
