As Omicron spreads fast experts show which is the best mask for kids
The rapid spread of the Omicron variant has made many parents ask about the latest instructions for masks, especially when it comes to children.

What is the best mask for children?
The best option is a mask KN95 or N95, but it can be difficult to find them in children's sizes.

The second best option is to provide a surgical mask that fits the child in size and place a second textile mask over that mask.

Less than better, but better than nothing, is just a fabric mask experts say.

How should a child's mask fit?
What is really important is that the mask fits snugly over the nose and mouth, not loose, but not too tight so as not to create discomfort while the children are wearing it.

Wearing a mask is recommended whenever they are indoors, especially when they are at school, but also in open spaces that are very crowded.
