Keeping Up with the Coronavirus

Every day, we’re inundated with social media posts and news coverage about the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19 across the world.

One trustworthy source is your local health department – in this case that would be us! The CHCC shares updates and information with the public in a variety of ways online:

You can also find updates and information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), among many other trustworthy organizations. Regardless of where you’re getting your updates, it’s worth taking a few minutes to fact check and make sure you aren’t spreading misinformation online!
