Long Covid Kids Symptom Galerie
On top of the many issues schools have faced during the pandemic, increasing numbers of children with Long Covid will mean significant new challenges for school staff. Children, young people and their families look to schools for support to manage the wide-ranging impacts on their lives and to help them access their education. They need school staff to believe them, and provide signposting and may need flexible and hybrid learning options that support their wellbeing. Long Covid Kids provide resources and information to support educational staff.
