We have been asked our advice regarding masks and Covid vaccination as school begins by many of our patients and families.
Last year, as a community, we learned that in-person school was optimal for a child’s mental health and learning. In addition, we know that wearing masks and frequent hand washing kept our children healthy.
With emerging variants in our community, the doctors at West Plano Pediatrics strongly recommend:
- Masking for all while indoors.
- Frequent hand washing.
- Vaccination for those 12 and over.
We hope that these recommendations will allow children to have fewer disruptions to their educational experience, prevent severe illness and decrease the potential for new variants to form in our communities.
Please contact your physician if you have questions regarding these recommendations.
