COVID-19 - Face masks/PPE

Acceptable Face Masks

Disposable Facemask
Disposable/single-use face mask
Fabric Facemask
Re-usable fabric face mask

Students will be allowed to wear a disposable/single-use face mask or a re-usable fabric face covering whilst in school. The styles of mask acceptable to wear in school are shown in the images here.

Unacceptable Face Masks

Scarves or bandanas should be removed on entry to school site and placed in a plastic bag inside the student's school bag.

Latest advice from WHO on wearing of face masks for young people is as follows:

‘Children who are in general good health can wear a non-medical or fabric mask. This provides source control, meaning it keeps the virus from being transmitted to others if they are infected and are not aware that they are infected. The adult who is providing the mask should ensure the fabric mask is the correct size and sufficiently covers the nose, mouth and chin of the child.

Children with underlying health conditions such as cystic fibrosis, cancer or immunosuppression, should, in consultation with their medical providers, wear a medical mask. A medical mask controls spreading of the virus and protection to the wearer, and is recommended for anyone who is at higher risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19.’
