Does my child need to wear a face mask?
When deciding whether to wear a face mask, you should always follow government advice.
According to the World Health Organization, you only need to wear a mask if you have contracted COVID-19 or are treating someone who is sick.
When it comes to making that decision for your child, you should also consider their age and behaviour. Some kids won't deal well with face masks.
"A child cannot be expected to tolerate the inconvenience and discomfort of correctly wearing a mask," Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Professor Lidia Morawska points out. Assess your child's behaviour and plans before deciding whether to purchase them a mask.
