The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly changed just about every aspect of our daily lives. But one thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment to provide your child with the highest quality and safest care.

During the pandemic, Nemours leaders have been called upon to share expertise, tips and advice to educate families locally, nationally and internationally about this ever-changing virus and its impact on children.

Below are hot topics covered by the media and during Nemours’ webcasts throughout our region, the country and beyond.
