Since this affects all of us and it is so new, there is so much information and misinformation being spread. It is essential that when you hear something, that you verify it before sharing it with others or making decisions based upon that information.
For example, if you read a social media post with a link to a news article, before sharing it, go read the news article and then read the original source that the news article is discussing. For example, if it is discussing a report from the Imperial College London MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease, go to their website and read the report yourself. There will usually be a good summary that you can read.
This is incredibly important because the decisions that each of us makes until COVID-19 is no longer a threat matter to us as individuals and to everyone on a global level. Let's all make decisions based upon quality information.
Here are some sources of information to help you learn about COVID-19 to help you make decisions.
To find COVID-19 information for specific states, cities, or counties, do a web search for COVID-19 and the name of your state, city, or county. Make sure that you choose a COVID-19 page that is on the official website of your respective state, city, or county.
