Masks in schools: several EU countries already enforce them in primaries | Coronavirus | The Guardian

Unless the entire class has been vaccinated, Italy has also required all pupils aged six and over to wear a mask indoors at school since last year, while Greece extended the mandate to nursery school children – with masks to be changed three times a day.

Belgium made mask wearing mandatory for all children over the age of six, including at school, in early December, with the health minister, Frank Vandenbroucke, saying the key lay in “stopping the engine” of viral transmission among children.

Spain has also required all school children over the age of six to wear face masks in class since the start of the new academic year in September, when the country was recording the highest Covid incidence rate in western Europe.
