Slowing infections -- Wash and disinfect -- Social distancing -- Staying mentally healthy.
As the COVID-19 pandemic spread, the phrase "flatten the curve" became widely known. It refers to the things people can do to space the total number of infections out over a longer period of time. This helps prevent the health-care system from being overloaded. Flattening the Curve examines social distancing and the other measures that people took to slow the spread of the disease. Features include a glossary, references, websites, source notes, and an index. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. Core Library is an imprint of Abdo Publishing, a division of ABDO.

This entry in the Core Library Guide to COVID-19 series (6 titles) explains how infection rates can rise along a curve and why it's important for communities to stop the spread of the virus and not overwhelm the healthcare system. The concise, clear text presents ways that readers can try to stop COVID-19 from spreading, including handwashing, wearing masks, and social distancing. A final chapter considers how the pandemic has affected mental health and offers suggestions for tackling anxiety and depression. Photos of recent events and young people engaged in healthy behaviors, real-life examples of individual experiences during the pandemic, charts, and sidebars keep the text accessible. "Straight to the Source" quotes and concluding guided questions also encourage students to reflect on the pandemic and its effects. Timely and scientifically valid. Grades 4-8.
