Below is a video link for K-2 about the Corona virus. Be sure to watch the video with your little person so that you can clarify any questions they still might have. I have found that kids need help understanding that the models used to represent the virus are just that, a model, and that the real virus is microscopic.
For kids a bit older or that just want to hear from the experts here is a video of a kid talking to s couple doctors and getting some straight kid friendly information. Again you probably will want to watch with your child to add any clarity that still may be needed.
