We’re Open: Services return and safety continues.

At Marshfield Children’s, we put your family’s safety, health and well-being at the forefront of every decision we make during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Your child's next appointment will look different

When you bring your child in for their next appointment, it may not be like the last time you visited. For some children, it may even be overwhelming or scary. It is important to have a conversation with your child about COVID-19. Use the below resources to prepare your child for their appointment.

Read it

Download these books that talk about COVID-19. These resources introduce your child to COVID-19 through the power of storytelling. It is a good way to begin a discussion with younger children.

Download “I have a question about Coronavirus.”

Download “My name is Coronavirus.”

Color it

Download and print this coloring sheet with animals wearing masks. Use this as a way to begin a discussion with younger children about why people are wearing masks.
