Toddler Masks

While there is recent positive news this year about the upcoming developments in vaccines for children under 5, masks made for toddlers and younger kids are the best current protection along with ventilation, social distancing and testing for schools and day care environments for this age range and those children not yet able to be vaccinated. 

 

Some of the latest recommendations have included masks with filters to keep everyone safest at school.  This has been re-emphasized as a top choice as of 2022 for everyone.  However, experts also recommend that the best mask is the one that your child will wear.  Some may find the specialty filter masks not the easiest choice for their kids.

 

Many experts suggest that younger kids in the toddler age range may be fine with a standard mask made for toddlers in toddler sizes.  The CDC advises that one should NEVER put a mask on children younger than 2 years old

 

For current CDC masking guidelines, please refer to their website.

 

*CDC guidance and local school mask rules are continually updating, but a cloth mask with filter insert pockets is a great reusable kids' mask option, if pediatric face masks, KF94 masks, child size KN95 masks and child N95 masks are hard to buy.

** The CDC also suggests that a disposable mask may be worn under a cloth mask as a filter when a filter mask is not available.
