While COVID-19 has become a familiar topic in many households, it can still be hard to know how to talk to your child about COVID-19. It can also be hard to know how to best support your child as we all continue to navigate disrupted routines and changes to home, school, and work life, and how to make sure you are taking care of yourself during this difficult time.
For the latest information about COVID-19:
- Visit the BC Centre for Disease webpage. You will find information about COVID-19 testing for children and youth, including videos to watch about the testing process and where to find a COVID-19 Testing Site.
- The BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool can help you decide if you need testing for COVID-19. You can complete this assessment for yourself, or for someone else, if they are not able to.
- If your child is a patient at BC Children’s Hospital, visit the BC Children's website for information and frequently asked questions.
- Visit the new BCCDC K-12 Schools and COVID-19 website for information such as preventing COVID-19 in schools and student safety.
