Bill to let students to self-apply sunscreen bill advances

Health

Warmer weather is right around the corner, and soon young students may be able to self-apply sunscreen in school. 

A bill just cleared the state senate to allow children ages 6 and up to put on sunscreen as long as their parents gives a written note to the school nurse. 

Current law treats sunscreen like over-the-counter medications so you need a doctor’s note. 

The bill now moves to the House.
