Should Children Wear Face Masks?

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
