Parents are being told to wear a mask when dropping off and collecting their children from school in Jersey from today.
The Education department guidance has changed to say that 'all adult visitors to any school setting should wear a mouth and nose covering, this includes when dropping off and collecting children.'
Headteachers have emailed families asking all adults approaching a school to have a mask on.
The advice has been updated on the Government of Jersey website.
Parents have been asked to share the information with any family members that pick up their children.
Secondary school staff and students in years 11, 12, and 13 have been advised to wear masks in school since November.
The guidance was extended to staff at all schools and all secondary school pupils in December.
The wearing of masks in shops and enclosed indoor spaces in Jersey was made mandatory on 1 December 2020.
