Talking to children and teens about COVID-19
Students are spending a significant time out of school due to COVID-19. It is natural they may feel stress and anxiety about when they will get to return to their regular routines with their teachers and their friends. Children will likely have many questions about what the virus is, why schools are closed, and why they have limited access to friends and family. The Oregon Department of Education has put together resources for talking with children about COVID-19.
