In healthcare, misinformation can be as deadly as the most serious disease – and spread just as quickly. On May 8th Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York reported that the original perception that COVID-19 did NOT affect children was incorrect. There is now evidence that it has caused severe illness in children with symptoms similar to Kawasaki disease and toxic shock-like syndromes, with recent deaths reported and others being investigated. This has been corroborated by Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Dr. Robert Redfield of the United States Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as the heads of other reporting agencies. Talk to your child’s doctor to get the facts about COVID-19.
Safer At Home remains the official guidance for your children’s welfare. Although this is not the summer to socialize face to face, it is more important than ever to create opportunities for children to feel normal, to do things that help make them feel happy, provide them with healthy outlets, and to socialize online with other children in a safe, well-structured environment. To fill this gap, camps like Performing Arts Workshops have pivoted from in-person to online programs and are also offering financial aid packages to families experiencing hardships.
At Performing Arts Workshops for example, the PAW Team has created a Sibling2 for 1 Tuition for kids who will take camp together, sharing one device. PAW also offers an Ambassador Scholarship Program in addition to other special discounts and Free Day Passes to help parents maximize their savings even more!
