What is COVID-19? How do I talk to my children about it? How is the Coronavirus-19 impacting Asians because of racism?

Hello Hornbill Family:

As public conversations around coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) increase, children may worry about themselves, their family, and friends getting ill with COVID-19. Parents, family members, school staff, and other trusted adults can play an important role in helping children make sense of what they hear in a way that is honest, accurate, and minimizes anxiety or fear. CDC has created guidance to help adults have conversations with children about COVID-19 and ways they can avoid getting and spreading the disease. In addition, we wanted to give you some additional tools to serve as a resource.
