COVID-19 Face Covering Guidelines

Masks

All children over the age of 2 and all adults should wear cloth face coverings that cover the nose and mouth to stop the spread of the corona virus. When worn correctly, cloth face coverings are safe to wear for long periods of time such as during the school day. Facial coverings are a simple barrier to help prevent respiratory droplets from traveling into the air and onto other people when the person wearing the mask coughs, sneezes, talks, or raises their voice. Here are a few good resources for guidance in wearing and caring for facial coverings.
