COVID-19 Resources from PBS KIds

This post brought to you by PBS KIDS

First, a reminder to make sure the news source you are getting your COVID-19 news from is a reliable source. Don’t believe everything you read. Check news once a day to keep up to date but try to stop yourself from obsessively checking the news many times a day. That will just get you amped up and induce anxiety. Be aware, but not obsessive. Make sure you follow the rules/guidelines of your local area. Stay safe.
