In response to the coronavirus in April of 2020, our Personal Safety and Community Awareness Team launched a series of videos and accompanying print-outs to provide children and caregivers helpful tips and resources, covering 5 different topics. Each week featured a new topic, with a post for parents and caregivers every Wednesday and a children’s version every Friday. Be sure to like our Facebook page for additional resources and support!
