Face Masks in Head Start Programs

View the Latest COVID-19 Updates from the Office of Head Start Wearing face masks helps stop the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019). Read this guidance from the Office of Head Start about wearing masks in Head Start settings. How Masks Keep People Safe The SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) spreads among people through the air when you breathe, talk, laugh, or sing. You do not have to feel sick or be coughing and sneezing to spread the virus. Masks are a simple and effective way to protect yourself and the people around you, especially when you and the people near you wear a mask, too. Masks in Head Start settings are especially important to protect children who are not eligible for a COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) vaccine. Using program funds to purchase masks for staff and children 2 years of age and older is an allowable expense.
