What does my child need to know about masks?

Remind your child:

  • Wear your mask if using public transport to travel to school
  • Make sure your mask covers your mouth and nose. 
  • Only remove the mask to eat or drink (and store it safely).
  • Touch only the straps when you take it off or put it on. Avoid touching the front of the mask,
  • Have a spare mask to use in case it gets wet or is used.  Put the used mask  into a container or brown paper bag until you can wash it.
  •  Do not share masks with friends: if you do not have a mask, use a scarf or bandana
  • Do not leave used masks lying around – they will have droplets from breathing or coughing or sneezing that may contain the virus.
  • Wash mask with soap and hot water. Dry in the sun and iron it to disinfect it.
