*From the CDC:
“Children 2 years of age and older should wear a mask. Help your child (if 2 years of age or older) wear a mask correctly when in public and when around people they don’t live with.”

From the VDH:
“CDC recommends that everyone 2 years and older wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth when they are out in the community. Masks should NOT be put on babies or children younger than 2 because of the danger of suffocation. Information on children and masks from the American Academy of Pediatrics can be found here.

Wearing a mask is a public health measure people should take to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in addition to (not instead of) social distancing, frequent hand cleaning ,and other everyday preventive actions.”
