The new rules for Missouri state that at daycare facilities, "children 2 years and older, and staff, should wear masks as much as possible."
"Even for the teachers, I think just remembering to keep it all (on) when they're talking to the children," Beyer told WDAF. "I have a tendency to pull it off just because I'm not used to wearing them myself."
Layne said she tells her daughter that masks are a positive thing, and wearing one helps in the global effort against coronavirus.
"I think that the more the parents wear (masks), the easier it will be for us because they will start getting used to seeing that," Beyer told WDAF.
Beyer said she is still trying to adapt.
“Some of the things, you just say, ‘How can you do it? No more than 10 children in the classroom?'” she told the television station. “Well, if all of our children come back, that will be a challenge.”
The CDC has tutorials for the proper wearing of masks, which should be smaller for toddlers. Here is a pattern for small faces, or an Etsy page where you can just buy one.
