For speakers with limited English ability, it’s important to provide translated resources for COVID-19 in the native language spoken by the people you support. This virus is no joke. We’re in the middle of a pandemic. The best way to combat fear is to communicate, communicate, communicate. With that said, there is still a lot of misinformation going around. So what can you do to make sure everyone in the community gets the message?
