In many places, people are wearing masks or cloth face coverings when they’re in public because of COVID-19. It’s an important way to help slow the spread of the virus. At first, it was mostly doctors, nurses, and others in health care settings who wore masks. But now, as other people wear them, more and more kids are seeing something they’re not used to seeing. For them, it can be strange or a little scary, especially if they need to put on masks too. In this video, Dr Bella explains to kids why they might be seeing more people in masks and how they should safely put on and remove their ‘super hero’ mask to keep everyone safe.
