This social story was written due to the Corona Virus (COVID-19) hysteria we are currently experiencing. The social story itself does not include the words 'corona virus' meaning it is adaptable to any viral outbreak that may occur in the future. There is however a page included, where you can write about virus that you are using the social story about, making it relevant and interactive.
This social story explains what a virus is, explains the symptoms of a virus, who virus' may affect, and the five main ways that we can prevent against the spread of germs and virus'. It then goes into what to do if you begin to feel unwell.
It also emphasises the need to work together, and has a page dedicated to reinforcing that a virus can affect anyone and that we cannot 'blame' a specific racial group or ethnicity.
