Should children wear a face mask?

Children over 2 years of age should wear a face mask when outside of the home. But, they should also still keep about 2 metres away from other people. That is about the length of a bed.

But, a child should not wear a mask if

  • they cannot breathe properly through the mask
  • it makes them fiddle with the mask and touch their face more often
  • they cannot take off the mask on their own because of a disability
  • they are under 2 years of age
