Our 16-part COVID-19 curriculum, covers everything learners need to know about COVID-19, from what it is, how it is spread, how to protect yourself and your family, to who in our population is at higher risk of severe infection. We look at how learners can boost their immune systems and which items in their houses are most likely to harvest the virus that could infect them. Helping employees to understand COVID-19 will ensure they can do their part to help prevent the spread of the disease through our country. Controlling the spread is vital to helping our economy and population survive this pandemic.
