New Video Helps Inform Children About COVID-19, Public Health Precautions
Navigating the COVID-19 pandemic with young children is challenging. Parents struggling to discuss the pandemic with their children can find help in a video from the University of Michigan School of Public Health that provides scientifically accurate information about COVID-19 for children 6 to 11 years old.
Narrated by a child, the video provides information on the current knowledge about COVID-19 and recommends public health methods for personal and community protection. The video is intended to encourage families to talk "constructively about the virus and the way it has impacted their lives," according to a press release.
"This video is scientifically accurate while taking into account not only a child's intellectual curiosity but also their emotional needs as they approach a difficult and increasingly personal subject matter," Alison Miller, of the University of Michigan School of Public Health, said in a statement.
