Everyone’s Corner: How Kids Can Wear Masks When They Go To School in Person
[Source: The Conversation]
by Meg Sorg
I’m a pediatric nursing professor with four young children. The youngest is 9 months old and the oldest is 9. My oldest will soon enter third grade, and his brother will be in second. My family plans to send them both back to their school for in-person instruction in mid-August.
Our school district is following an Indiana mandate, which requires students in third grade and up to wear masks. Because I believe all children who can wear a mask should do so, no matter what’s required, both of my sons will be wearing masks. I know this is easier said than done but, in my view, this struggle is worth the effort.
