Developmental Brown Bag: Understanding the invisible: Children’s knowledge and misconceptions of COVID-19 transmission

12:00-1:00 PM
As children have returned to the classroom, COVID-19 cases in children have increased, highlighting the importance of getting children to abide by health-promoting behaviors. Previous research has indicated that children are unlikely to abide by “Do’s and Don’ts” without a causal understanding of relevant processes. To that end, we investigated 5–12-year-old children’s (and their parents’) knowledge of COVID-19 transmission. In this talk, I will present preliminary data on common misconceptions children hold about COVID-19 transmission and discuss points of interest for future investigations and interventions.
