We can practice healthy habits like handwashing and coughing into the bend in our arm. We can offer comfort, connect with, and care for others safely. And we can keep learning and growing at home through everyday routines and simple activities. This session will go over all of the great resources from Sesame Street in Communities' Health Emergencies topic.
