Concern over this new virus can make children and families anxious.

While we don’t know where and to what extent the disease may spread here in the United States, we do know that it is contagious, that the severity of the illness can vary from individual to individual, and that there are steps we can take to prevent the spread of infection.

Acknowledging some level of concern, without panicking, is appropriate and can result in taking actions that reduce the risk of illness.

Helping children cope with anxiety requires providing accurate prevention information and facts without causing undue alarm.
