Kids Health Alliance (KHA) has partnered with The Provincial Council for Maternal and Child Health (PCMCH) to create resources for children, youth, and their families to help address some of the most commonly asked questions about COVID-19.
Toronto, ON (March 30, 2020)
The COVID-19 situation is constantly evolving and information is changing rapidly. First and foremost, it is our understanding the health sector is putting all necessary precautions in place to keep patients, families and staff safe.
While the provincial and federal governments, and children’s hospitals will be among your primary sources of information, Kids Health Alliance (KHA) has partnered with The Provincial Council for Maternal and Child Health (PCMCH) to create two documents for children, youth, and their families to help address some of the most commonly asked questions. These documents also include information and resources from other thought leaders and organizations in the pediatric health sector.
- Part 1: Frequently Asked Questions related to COVID-19 for Pediatrics
- Part 2: An inventory of resources from local, provincial, federal and international organizations
These resources can be accessed on the PCMCH website: https://www.pcmch.on.ca/covid-19-resources-for-children-youth-and-families/ .
We will update the web page and downloadable documents as new information becomes available.
If you have additional questions we could consider for future versions please contact Jessica Marangos (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you have general questions about the COVID-19 virus, we encourage you to visit the Ontario Ministry of Health’s website: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/.
