Kaweah Delta set to host Dec. 17 virtual coronavirus town hall for kids
VISALIA, CA – While adults may feel overwhelmed by all the information
about COVID-19, many children may feel the opposite. They may not understand
why they are attending school remotely or why they need to wear a mask
and may be searching for answers.
To help answer those questions for children, Kaweah Delta will partner
with Visalia Unified School District at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 17,
on a Kids Town Hall focused on COVID-19. The event’s guest speakers
will include VUSD Superintendent Dr. Tamara Ravalin and Keri Noeske, Kaweah
Delta’s Chief Nursing Officer.
Students from throughout Tulare County can submit their questions to
firstname.lastname@example.org. The event will be live-streamed on Kaweah Delta’s social media
channels, as well as through an online webinar, and is free. The event
is intended for kids, but parents are encouraged to listen in so they
can be prepared to discuss these questions/answers with their children.
“Young people have had to bear so much this year, losing out not
just on school but from all that goes with it – friends, sports,
events, and so much more,” said Deborah Volosin, Director of Kaweah
Delta’s Community Engagement Department. “We want to give
them a chance to ask questions so they can feel like they have a little
more understanding, and a little more control, during this challenging
time to be a kid.”
Students can register for the Town Hall at kaweahdelta.org/students, or
view the event through Kaweah Delta’s social media pages at facebook.com/kaweahdelta
and @kaweahdelta on Instagram.
