    Does my child need to wear a face mask?

    When deciding whether or not to wear a face mask, you should always follow government advice. Current mask mandates that began in August 2021 require children 12 years and over to wear a mask in public settings along with adults.

    Children under 12 are not required by law to wear a face mask, so it is up to the parents to decide if a mask is suitable or not. When making this decision, you should consider their age, behaviour and any health issues or learning disabilities that they have. Some kids don’t deal well with face masks.

    “A child cannot be expected to tolerate the inconvenience and discomfort of correctly wearing a mask,” Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Professor Lidia Morawska points out. Assess your child’s behaviour and plans before deciding whether to purchase them a mask.

    Does my child near to wear a mask at school?

    Kids under 12 are normally exempt from wearing a mask, however, they must be worn by tamariki in years 4 and above if the region is at the red tier of the traffic light system.

    What kind of mask should I buy for my child?

    There are a range of mask types available for kids, just like for adults, including cloth, disposable and KN95. The important thing is to make sure you are purchasing kids sizing so that the mask fits well over their face. Many retailers are selling masks with cute patterns or themes, so your child may like to pick out their own according to their favourite character or animal.
