You know what they say: better late than never . . . 

> Easy to Read COVID-19 Safety resources <https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/easy-to-read/index.html> are now available on the CDC website.  
> These resources are available thanks to the COVID-19 Accessible Materials and Culturally Relevant Messages for Individuals with Disabilities Project, led by Georgia Tech’s Center for Inclusive Design and Innovation (CIDI <https://cidi.gatech.edu/covid>). This is a CDC Foundation-funded communications initiative to which CDC is an advisor. The project aims to deliver essential COVID-19 information inBraille <https://cidi.gatech.edu/covid/braille>, American Sign Language (ASL), simplified text, and other alternative formats <https://cidi.gatech.edu/covid/accessible> to people with disabilities, their families, and caregivers.  ASL (American Sign Language) videos <https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvrp9iOILTQatwnqm61jqFrsfUB4RKh6J> continue to be available on the CDC YouTube channel and more are being produced in the coming weeks, so check back periodically.
