How to Wear a Cloth Mask

by Allegro Pediatrics


Allegro Pediatrics supports the Secretary of Health’s order to require wearing a mask when in public to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We require a mask for everyone visiting our clinics, 2 years and older. The state order does not require a letter from a doctor if your child has a medical reason to be exempted.

Many children find a mask more comfortable when it is the correct size, made of a fabric that doesn’t bother them, is shaped in a way that allows more space to breathe, has elastic that goes around the head instead of behind the ears, and the elastic ear loops attach to buttons on a favorite hat, glasses, or on a headband.
