PA DOH adopts Sunscreen Law

posted Feb 13, 2019, 9:44 AM by Amy Hale, MSN, RN

Skin protection at school

When kids go back to classrooms from the holiday break in January, they are free to carry an FDA-approved non-aerosolized sunscreen with them to school and at school-related activities without getting a doctor's note. They also will be able to apply it without having to go to the school nurse.  

This is a result of a new state law that also allows students to wear sun-protective clothing or hats while outdoors provided the items don't bear graphics or a message that violates school policy. 

Pennsylvania is the 17th state to allow children to possess and apply sunscreen at school, which dermatologists maintain is an important step in preventing skin cancer. It is the first state in the nation to include wearing clothing and hats to lessen sun exposure.
