We know that teens and their families are anxious about the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, especially given the media attention to this issue. During this time, it is important for teens and families to get information from reliable resources.

SAHM recommends that teens and their families review the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) websites for the most up to date information about COVID-19.

The CDC’s COVID-19 website provides detailed information about how to protect yourself and others, what to do if you think you are sick, and more.

The WHO’s COVID-19 website provides information about protecting yourself and others from getting sick, protection measures for those who have visited areas where COVID-19 is spreading, coping with stress, and more.

We also recommend the American Academy of Pediatrics’ healthychildren.org website for information about COVID-19.
