Kids have heard about COVID-19 – and have had their social and academic lives turned upside down because of it.

More than 442,000 children have been infected in the United States since the start of the pandemic – and studies show that children can be asymptomatic carriers of the virus, possibly infecting those most vulnerable in our communities. So how can parents keep their children safe and healthy?

As many kids head back-to-school (whether virtually, in-person, or somewhere in between), Wellstar Health System has created a catchy back-to-school kids safety rap to help parents teach children the importance of personal safety and hygiene habits as they hit the classroom. Washing your hands, wearing a mask, and keeping your distance is as crucial as completing your assignments or attending your Zoom class.
