Keeping Kids Busy And Safe In The Summer of COVID-19

The CDC points to 3 main COVID-19 symptoms, why was everyone baking bread early in quarantine, and why some hand sanitizers have a foul odor.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been hard on kids. The mental, psychosocial aspects of social distancing and isolation are starting to pile up as we enter another month of this new normal.

But as the weather gets warmer, kids are trying to see their friends, head to a park or a pool, and play outside. But what activities are safe this summer amid the pandemic? 

Dr. Tanya Altmann is a best-selling author, network television parenting expert, and an American Academy of Pediatrics spokesperson, and joined RadioMD’s Melanie Cole on her podcast Healthy Children to discuss how to navigate a summer with kids during coronavirus.

And as the pandemic continues its hold on the states, growing in a large number of places, experts are worried that canceling summer activities like sports, camps, and school will put kids at an increased risk of drowning. The University of Arizona’s Dr. Gary Kirkilas joins us to talk about those concerns.
