Disease outbreak activities

To support parents, caregivers and educators in teaching young people about disease outbreaks (like COVID-19), we've created a series of learning resources and activities.

For more teaching resources about the top hazards in B.C., consider using our free Master of Disaster youth education program. Additional disease outbreak content can be found on page 8 of the Get Ready Guide (PDF, 9.73 MB)
