Here is link to a terrific flyer focused on strategies for calming kids' worries and fears during this difficult time, https://5il.co/g2an. You can also find many more resources online at https://www.lifespan.org/centers-services/infectious-diseases/novel-coronavirus-information/covid-19-parent-resources
