How Can We Talk To Children About COVID-19?

A resource regarding how to talk to children about the pandemic.

It is often difficult to find ways to discuss the pandemic with young children and figure out how much information to provide to them so they will be aware of their part in controlling the spread of the virus, but not to alarm them unnecessarily. Here is a resource from Kaiser Permanente regarding how to talk to children about the pandemic and helpful hints about establishing family routines to reduce stress for them. Focusing on what they can do to help avoid spreading the virus is important so please discuss hand hygiene, physical distancing, and wearing masks when appropriate to help them to develop these safe habits.
