Wearing Kids Face Masks in School - Protection from COVID-19 and other Sicknesses
Summary: Wearing kids face masks in school has been effective at reducing the cases of children falling sick. Your little one can wear a mask and yet look stylish and adorable!
My 4 year old daughter Maeleth recently started school on 1 September 2020. For the past 4 years, she has been with my wife and I at home, 'homeschooled' in a way.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation, it is mandatory for children to wear kids face masks to school.
It is compulsory in Singapore to wear face masks when you go out, whether you are an adult or a child. I believe this prevention measure is why the cases of COVID-19 in Singapore have dropped to single-digit new cases each day.
Even in preschools, teachers and parents are realizing that their little ones are staying healthy and not falling sick as often as before.
The law requiring children to wear masks in preschool will be lifted soon, but Mae's school sent all parents a letter, saying that they strong recommend that the children continue wearing kids face masks to school because it has been effective in keeping them healthy.
It really sucks when little ones fall sick. Besides incurring medical bills, there is the stress of caring for a cranky, ill child.
Wearing a mask is effective protection because kids don't fully understand the importance of practicing hygiene. They touch their eyes and mouth with dirty hands, and pick their boogers whenever they feel like doing so.
Besides that, there is the transmission of germs when fellow student sneeze or cough in other students' faces.
Nowadays, there are beautiful kids face mask designs available for purchase. Let's look at some!
