Visual Support Boards and Communication Support Image & Text Boards in screening clinic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)

HyunJu Park, PhD1*, Seonkyoung Han, MA2*

The Visual Support Boards and Communication Support Image & Text Boards linked below explain each step for the screening clinic of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). These kits are available for use internationally to assist health care providers and people with communication difficulties. Because these kits are based on the current practice and the Korean Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for the COVID-19 in Korea, all documents can be translated into different languages and updated according to local clinical practice and new guidelines for the COVID-19 management of each country. The boards are provided in 3 different languages (English, Chinese and Vietnamese).

Please Note: Because the copyright owner permits the modification of these kits, the language can be changed freely without contacting the authors. However, please send an email to if you wish to modify any pictures and symbols.
