Mask Exemptions

9/8/2021
 

We at Howard County Pediatrics, LLC, in keeping with recommendations of the CDC and the AAP, strongly support masking mandates at schools and daycares for children aged 2 years and over. In keeping with this recommendation, we will not write medical exemption letters for our patients with regard to masking policies. In the very rare instance that a child has a medical or behavioral condition that precludes the child from wearing a mask, the child’s medical or behavioral specialist should be contacted to ask for any necessary documentation. 

Please refer to the AAP’s COVID-19 Guidance for Safe Schools at the following link.
