Some practical tips about masks for children
Fabric masks should be treated like underwear: wash them regularly, ensure they cover everything and don't share.
These are a better environmental option.
Label fabrics mask like school hats — they will go missing!
Surgical/disposable masks are single use. Like using a tissue to blow your nose, make sure it goes in the bin once used and wash your hands.
And masks should fit snugly — the less gaps there are the better they will work.
