A New York middle school has announced it will be mandating double masks starting on March 15, according to a message posted in a parents' group by the principal.

East Hampton Middle School Principal Charles Soriano cited guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, saying that the CDC guidelines "specifically point out that two disposable masks, for example, are not acceptable."

Soriano said that the rule would require a disposable medical mask under a reusable cloth mask.
