While teens and adults have to wear face masks when they leave home, children aged 12 and below are allowed to continue wearing face shields.
While face shields may be easier for kids to tolerate, they are not as effective as masks, medical experts caution.
“Face shields may reduce the likelihood of large splashes or droplets from coming into contact with the child’s eyes, nose and mouth, but do not offer the same degree of protection as compared with a well-fitted surgical mask,” says Associate Professor Thoon Koh Cheng, head and senior consultant for the infectious disease service in the department of paediatrics at the KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
Dr Chan Poh Chong, head and senior consultant of the division of general ambulatory paediatrics and adolescent medicine at the National University Hospital, says that face shields have been recommended as an alternative because masks may be restrictive for younger children.
He suggests that parents use age-appropriate language to explain why kids should protect themselves and others from infection, empathise with their difficulties, and practise wearing masks and shields at home before classes resume.

Women in the U.S. have endured steep job losses due to their high representation in “high-contact” service sectors such as restaurants, travel and hospitality, which social-distancing guidelines have capsized, according to a working paper distributed by the National Bureau of Economic Research and authored by researchers from the University of California San Diego, Northwestern University and the University of Mannheim.
Women in the U.S. have endured steep job losses due to their high representation in “high-contact” service sectors such as restaurants, travel and hospitality, a new analysis says.
“Together, these changes imply that the ‘new normal’ after a pandemic recession will see a higher share of women in the labor force and a lower gender wage gap compared to the pre-recession economy.”

Garcia said 60% of the people receiving food are new clients, and 25% are from the community – they're not Venice Family Clinic patients.
Venice Family Clinic began distributing free and healthy food to patients at its Santa Monica location in November.
"Food is medicine and that is why Venice Family Clinic committed itself to providing fresh and healthy food to our patients – and with the COVID-19 outbreak, to the broader community," said Rigoberto A. Garcia II, Venice Family Clinic's director of health education.
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Venice Family Clinic, a nonprofit community health center that has already exponentially increased its distribution of free and healthy food at its Santa Monica site since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, announced today that it will further expand its program on Thursday to provide free food to the community twice a month at its clinic in Culver City.
Now celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the Clinic has grown from a small storefront operation into one of Los Angeles' leading community health centers, providing care to nearly 28,000 men, women and children annually through sites in Venice, Santa Monica, Mar Vista, Inglewood and Culver City.
Evidence against Easterbrook, McDonald’s said, “consisted of dozens of nude, partially nude, or sexually explicit photographs and videos of various women, including photographs of these company employees, that Easterbrook had sent as attachments to messages from his company email account to his personal email account”.
At that time, McDonald’s listed his termination as “without cause”, signalling that the Chicago-based company considered Easterbrook’s transgressions insufficient to prevent him from receiving exit payments.
Easterbrook, who was fired from the company last November over a relationship with an employee, allegedly hid details of three other “physical sexual relationships” with employees in the year before he left the company, according to a lawsuit filed in Delaware.
Steve Easterbrook, the British former chief executive of McDonald’s, is being sued by the company in an attempt to recover tens of millions in compensation and severance payments after new allegations of sexual misconduct emerged against him.
“Based on the results of the investigation, the board concluded that Mr Easterbrook lied to the company and the board and destroyed information regarding inappropriate personal behaviour and in fact had been involved in sexual relationships with three additional company employees prior to his termination, all in violation of company policy,” McDonald’s said.
MORE FROM FORBESTaylor Swift's New No. 1 Album Outsold The Rest Of The Top 50 Combined (And Then Some)By Hugh McIntyre No. 147 - Red Hot Chili Peppers - Greatest Hits It’s now been four years since the Red Hot Chili Peppers released a new album, but fans don’t seem deterred by the band’s relative silence.
Folklore is Swift’s seventh No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, which is enough to tie her with Janet Jackson for the third-most rulers among women on the all-genre tally.
No. 1 - Taylor Swift - Folklore Taylor Swift is no stranger to the top spot on the Billboard 200, but it’s still pretty surprising that she was able to move as many units of her new set Folklore as she did, considering she only announced it a few hours before it arrived.

IBM said in an appreciation that Allen made seminal contributions to programming and compiler research.
Allen helped build an experimental compiler for IBM’s Advanced Computing system, and from 1980 to the mid-1990s, she headed a research team at IBM working on the new concept of parallel computing, which became widely used in personal computers.
In a 2002 New York Times profile, Allen said there was much initial skepticism of Fortran and how effective it could be in making computer programming easier and more efficient, which was a main focus of her career.
Allen also served as IBM’s language liaison with the National Security Agency, where she helped design and build Alpha, which IBM describes as “a very high-level code breaking language which featured the ability to create new alphabets beyond the system defined alphabets.”
A strong supporter of mentoring other women in programming, Allen was inducted into the Women in Technology International Hall of Fame and received the Augusta Ada Lovelace Award from the Association for Women in Computing, according to IBM.

Temporary forms of hair loss include side effects of cancer treatment or a response to stressful situations.
Most cases of hair loss are attributed to androgenetic alopecia and this has prompted researchers to counter the natural process with natural products.
The risk of androgenetic alopecia rises with age, and it's higher for women with a history of hair loss on either side of the family, notes the health body.
The common cause of permanent hair loss is androgenetic alopecia, which occurs because of a genetically determined shortening of anagen - a hair's growing phase - and a lengthening of the time between the shedding of a hair and the start of a new anagen phase, explains Harvard Health.

Earlier it was reported the woman had been confirmed as Queensland’s latest COVID-19 case but that it could be a false positive, as pathologists and scientists scramble to confirm her test results.
It means there are now only 11 active COVID-19 cases in Queensland.
She was the only case reported on Wednesday, but on Thursday morning the state’s health minister and deputy premier Steven Miles said investigations were ongoing.
Queensland’s total number of active COVID-19 cases has been revised, after follow up test results for a 68-year-old Ipswich woman showed she had not contracted the virus.
It comes eight days after it was revealed two women, who were infectious with the potentially deadly virus, were confirmed COVID-19 cases after allegedly lying their way into Queensland and spending days in the community.
23 Fascinating Facts About The Original "Mulan" Movie That I Can't Believe I Never Knew Before Bruce Willis was supposed to be Li Shang?
Buena Vista Pictures Since he's too young to fight and her father is too weak, Mulan enlists in the army instead.
Chinese-American actor and red carpet assassin Ming-Na Wen, who was already in her mid-thirties when she was cast as the teenage Mulan, was approached for the role because Disney loved her narration of the groundbreaking movie The Joy Luck Club.
Hun armies often had women in their ranks, so when Mulan reveals that SHE caused the avalanche, Shan Yu is hardly surprised and views her as a very real threat to him.
This takes Mulan's final body count to 3,994, since Shan Yu is technically killed by Mushu.

He said the woman was pinned between a young whale, which was a calf last year but is now quite large, and its mother.
The woman who was struck by the whale wasn’t the only casualty on the day, which tour operators have labelled as a “freak accident”.
Ms Pitman, who had seen the whale while swimming around the reef, said the mother and her calf became “protective” and “aggressive” towards the snorkellers in the water.
Speaking to The West Australian, Tahnee Pitman and her friend Sharnee Pannell had just finished their second snorkelling expedition when the mammal struck a 29-year-old woman, which left her with internal bleeding and broken ribs.
Two women from Perth, who were snorkelling at Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia have described the terrifying moment a fellow swimmer was crushed by a humpback whale.
Publisher and co-founder Amanda Zamora said that she and Ramshaw spent the better part of 2019 developing the business model and product plan as well as how to grow and audience and sustain it and by the end of the year, they both felt they had enough validation, financial support and a strong enough business strategy to take the leap and leave their jobs at the Texas Tribune.
“Corporate underwriting is anticipated to be a cornerstone of our revenue model,” said Emily Ramshaw, The 19th’s CEO and co-founder.
A non-profit organization, The 19th — named after the 19th Amendment which gave some U.S. women the right to vote — is monetarily supported by a mix of membership, donations and corporate underwriting, meaning it’s free from the worry of chasing advertising dollars for survival.
But for new non-profit publication, The 19th, its mission — providing women and people of color with the information and resources they need to be equal participants in the United States democracy — was too important to put on hold in the lead up to the presidential election in November.
“We see the partnerships and distribution as more than just pushing our stories out to people, but thinking about how we can engage those audiences proactively,” said Zamora, whether that is through driving them to its newsletter, virtual events or social media platforms.

In compiling its wish list of potential nominees, Wall Street is pushing for what some executives call "adults" who understand markets and have been regulators in the past, such as Fed Governor Lael Brainard, ex-Deputy Treasury Secretary Sarah Bloom Raskin, and Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic and TIAA Chief Executive Officer Roger Ferguson, both of whom are African American.
Other favourites include several women with closer Wall Street ties: Sallie Krawcheck, the former chief financial officer of Citigroup who now runs a digital investment platform for women; Alphabet CFO Ruth Porat, who held the same job at Morgan Stanley; and Mellody Hobson, co-CEO of Ariel Investments and a board member of JPMorgan Chase.
Progressives say they are working on a two-pronged plan, offering names to the Biden campaign but also developing opposition research against potential Wall Street nominees.
After being appointed as a placeholder for Biden's Senate seat in 2009, Kaufman called for capping the size of banks and ripped the Justice Department for failing to send Wall Street executives to prison after the 2008 financial crisis.

“I adopted a picture of a young woman carrying a load of empty jerrycans in search for clean water to cater for her family.
