Masking Recommendations for Child Care Providers

COVID-19 prevention strategies remain critical to protect people, including children and staff, who are not fully vaccinated.

  • Unvaccinated individuals ages 2+ should wear a mask when indoors. In general, people do not need to wear masks outdoors unless physical distancing between persons of different households cannot be maintained.
  • Allow individuals to remove their masks only with proof of full vaccination
  • When one or more children are unvaccinated, adults in the room should wear a mask as modeling behavior.
