A Free Resource for COVID-related Communication
COVID-19 means clear communication is more important than ever.
That's why we created the COVID Communication Kit. The kit contains ready-made media that is designed to give communicators a head start in explaining new policies and procedures. It is full of media that can be used to create effective videos, presentations, documents, and more.
The kit includes:
- Over 130 COVID-related images (hi-res PNG) for documents, presentations, and videos
- Ready-made videos that succinctly explain masks, contact tracing, and social distancing
- PowerPoint presentations that provide a starting point for your message
- Templates and workbooks for clear communication of policies

About the Videos
The videos in the kit (viewable below) are designed to play without audio. Instead, words appear on the screen to relate the information. There are a few reasons why this is the case:
- Easy editing - Voice-overs are difficult to edit. For these videos, the content of each video comes from the included PowerPoint source file. Editing the video's message can be accomplished by changing the words (and/or images) in the PowerPoint and then recording a new screencast video of the presentation. Learn more in this webinar.
- Anytime viewing - No speakers or headphones are required. The videos can be viewed in any context without annoying others.
- Accessibility - The videos are accessible for the hearing impaired.
