The government revised its basic coronavirus policy Thursday, specifying measures to be taken at schools and child care facilities, including urging young children to wear masks.

The wearing of masks by young children is recommended for those age 2 or older “on a temporary basis, to the extent possible based on their development,” the policy said, adding that it is not recommended that children under 2 wear them due to an increased risk of suffocation or heat stroke.
