As COVID-19 changes mean masks are coming off, what about children under 12?

May 18, 2021

It is a terrifying time to be a parent of a child under 12. The CDC has said anyone who is fully vaccinated can stop wearing a mask. And Gov. Larry Hogan has “lifted the statewide mask mandate in addition to all other capacity and distancing restrictions.” Over the past year, I have worked with my kids (ages 2, 6, 8, and 11) to help them develop the skills to enter stores safely. They wear masks with no problem (even the 2-year-old). They know not to touch things unnecessarily, they hand sanitize regularly, and they stay 6 feet away from anyone outside our household.
