Explaining COVID-19 Using Plain Language

Recent news stories related to populations that are being hit hardest with COVID-19 have brought to light the need for information written at a reading level that is accessible to everyone, also known as plain language.

This can be a challenge when trying to convey complex health issues and terminology at a fifth- to eighth-grade reading level. Finding such information in another language can pose another hurdle.

Librarians at the Health Sciences and Human Services Library (HS/HSL) have put together a list of resources that may help you increase the knowledge and compliance of your patients, family members, and friends during this global pandemic (the spread of a disease in every country in the world).

You can access the resources on the HS/HSL’s Health Literacy subject guide.
