COVID-19 Fact Sheet for Grandfamilies and Multigenerational Families
This fact sheet was updated in June and provides information for grandfamilies to stay healthy, informed and connected during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our country and the world are facing a pandemic like we have never seen before. People over the age of 60 and those with compromised immune systems are among the highest-risk populations that COVID-19 is impacting. While grandparents are advised to physically isolate themselves from grandchildren, it is nearly impossible for older caregivers to distance themselves from the children they are raising. You are on the front line for your family every day. Today’s challenges make caring for them that much more difficult. It is important to stay calm and do whatever you can to stay healthy, informed, and connected.
