A Round-Up of Multilingual Resources on COVID-19

Last updated: March 31, 2020.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there is “an ongoing outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first detected in China and which has now been detected in more than 100 locations internationally, including in the United States. [The disease caused by this virus] has been named ‘coronavirus disease 2019’ (abbreviated ‘COVID-19’). […] On March 11, WHO publicly characterized COVID-19 as a pandemic. On March 13, the President of the United States declared the COVID-19 outbreak a national emergency.”

This blog post contains fact sheets, posters, multimedia resources, and links to live updates in multiple languages about COVID-19, its symptoms, and how to prevent it; and about handwashing. Key Centers for Disease Control and Prevention resources are listed first, followed by materials from other sources organized by type (sources include federal, state, and local government agencies, and selected nonprofit organizations). You can download materials by clicking on your desired language, or access the latest materials from each source by clicking through to each source page.

    Do you have any resources in Creole and Swahili? The school districts I work with do not, and I would love to send this resource to the newcomer families that I work with. Thank you!
