Children’s masks: all the coolest styles
The use of non-medical masks (so-called community masks) has gradually become part of the new normal: it is therefore important to find children’s masks designed to best adapt to even the smallest faces.
There is agreement around the world on the usefulness of masks: health authorities recommend wearing cloth/surgical masks by making it clear that they help prevent the spread of COVID-19. The Children’s Hospital Bambino Gesù in Rome provides in this article various directions, clarifications, definitions, up to provide a tutorial on how to sew masks in the house.
For more effective use, be sure to practice appropriate hand hygiene before wearing the mask and removing it, taking care to remove the rubber bands first and then carry it forward. Surgical type masks should be disposable, while those that can be brushed in canvas after each use and also washed in the washing machine (according to the instructions of each manufacturer).
Remember to buy children’s masks produced just for the use of the little ones: adapting an adult mask is not effective! Just think that the size of an adult mask is about 15 cm x 30 cm, while those for children are 12 to 25 cm on average, considering the age and the fact that the mask must adhere well to the face of the child and safely cover the mouth and nose.
