Face Coverings in relation to children

North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Partnership (NYSCP) would like to highlight the importance to parent and carers of not using face coverings on children, particularly babies which has been highlighted in recent media platforms. The Lullaby Trust who raise awareness of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and provides expert advice on safer sleep for babies are urged parents to avoid using face masks on babies and state “We are not aware of any advice for babies to wear masks, whether they are infected or not. There is a potential risk of suffocation and other hazards with doing this”.

From Friday 24th July compulsory face covering in shops will be enforced. The Government guidance states that ‘children under the age of 11 are exempt from wearing a face covering’.
