American Sign Language

 

The COVID-19 American Sign Language (ASL) videos below from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were supported, in part, by a grant from the CDC Foundation, using funding provided by its donors. The materials were created in partnership with the Center for Inclusive Design and Innovation at Georgia Tech. View the full CDC COVID-19 ASL YouTube playlist for additional videos. Please note that only the videos listed on this microsite were developed through this project; others on the CDC COVID-19 ASL YouTube playlist were developed by CDC.
