Many of us are experiencing uncertainty right now in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. People with children are also noting their increased worry and confusion over school closures, cancellation of plans and other changes and restrictions on daily routines. 

There are a number of resources available specifically for young people, designed to educate, help with informed decision making and reduce worry. Here are a few of the best, reliable resources we’ve found, that you may want to share with the children in your life or refer to when discussing COVID-19 with them.
