Dear parents,

We are glad to share with you the third group of words in our COVID-19 Dictionary for Children. These words discuss ways to determine if a person has COVID-19. Your children will need more guidance to understand the technical terms included in this edition. Although there is a new classification of COVID-19 cases, we decided to include the definitions of former terminologies because these continue to be used in different parts of our country. Our college will come out with a new set of definitions to explain the new terminologies. You may download a copy of the dictionary at
Thank you very much!
