Mask Policy | PAHC

PAHC Policy

Children ages 2 years and older can and should wear a cloth face mask, including while in schools, child care and other group settings. The ONLY exceptions to this universal recommendation for adults and children are for someone who is in respiratory distress or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove a face covering without assistance. Note, asthma is not a reason not to wear a mask. The opposite is true - a person with asthma should take that step to protect themselves. We will not write letters stating that children do not need to wear masks.
