NN and Sesame Street team up next Saturday for their fifth Town Hall as kids and families persevere through the COVID-19 pandemic and prepare for a very different holiday season. The hour-long special, The ABCs of COVID-19, will be hosted by CNN’s Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Anchor Erica Hill along with Sesame Street’s Big Birdand friends on Saturday, December 19 at 10 a.m. ET on CNN, CNN International, and CNN en Español.
Familiar faces from Sesame Street and experts from CNN and across the country will be ready to answer children’s questions about staying healthy through the winter months, celebrating the holidays while distanced from extended family and friends, and coping with big feelings as they continue to face unprecedented challenges in their young lives.
