COVID Kit: An Instagram Series for Young People

COVID Kit Intro_Page

With the age group 20-39 making up 39 percent of COVID cases in the state of Washington – the highest of any group – our team decided to support the work of King County Public Health by creating an Instagram series of helpful tips for young people.

Our project assistants and new SU graduates Anneke and Mary conducted research among friends and acquaintances to find out what their questions are. They created the “COVID Kit” in three different parts, with original illustrations by Anneke.

UPDATE 8/21/20:  We’ve updated the images after review by Public Health Seattle-King County, who requested a few tweaks so they could share the series via their Instagram. Thank you Public Health!
