Kids and Face Coverings
Who should wear face coverings in public?
Children’s Hospital Colorado logo
Most everyone. Event kids with asthma. There are only a few exceptions, and for good reason. The following people should NOT wear face coverings, and it’s because the risks outweigh the benefits.
• Babies and children under age two
• Anyone who would need help taking off their mask in an emergency, such as someone who has cognitive impairment or is unconscious
If your child has significant issues wearing a cloth mask, their pediatrician, a child phycologist or an occupational therapist may be able to help (and if your child with asthma is having a tough time, it may be because their asthma isn’t well controlled.)
