      Part of my job is writing policies based on the latest COVID-19 information, and I haven’t heard anything about ADHD vs. COVID-19 mortality. There’s no physiological reason for there to be a connection. The most significant factor is age.

      My best advice for your son is to try different types of masks. But remember, the best preventive measure is to limit contact with other people. Keep up all of the various precautions; they work together, not separately.

      My son prefers a neck gaiter. It’s not as good a barrier as a fitted mask with a filter, but it is certainly better than no mask, by a LOT.

      At our school, kids that don’t tolerate masks are doing better with the face shields.

      Adults have to wear both on campus, so we have them in stock.

      He still needs to kept away from crowded places and have him wear a mask when necessary.
