Should my 1-year-old girl wear a face mask for COVID-19?
Hello, Should my 1-year-old girl wear a face mask for COVID 19? I didn’t take her out anywhere after the pandemic got over. I don’t whether I should ask her to wear a face mask. Please suggest what I should do?
@aaparsha Coronavirus can spread when people breathe, talk, cough, or sneeze. This is true even for people who feel fine and have no symptoms, they can still be infected and not know it. When someone wears a mask, it keeps the virus from reaching other people if they are infected, and also protects them from catching the virus from others. And children under 2 years old are protected from infection when people around them wear masks. Kids under age 2 can't wear masks or get a COVID-19 vaccine. So, it's important to protect them in other ways.
