COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Resources

A collection of reliable resources about the 2020 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

The Basics

This guide is a collection of reliable resources for you to use when learning about the current COVID-19 outbreak. We are monitoring the situation and will keep this guide up-to-date.


Getting vaccinated (and getting your vaccine booster) is the best way to protect yourself and others. Check with your local authorities to learn more about how the vaccines are rolling out in your area.

What Now?

Stop the Spread of COVID-19. Stay Home. Keep as much distance from other people as possible when out. Wear a mask. Wash your hands.

Now that vaccines are widely available, the most important thing you can do to protect yourself and your community is to get vaccinated and get the recommended booster shots. Especially as some new variants make the vaccines alone less effective, it is still important to take other measures to slow the spread of the disease. This is called "flattening the curve," and it means that there will be more resources for anyone who does catch it, so everyone will have better outcomes. To accomplish this, you can take several simple steps.

  • Make a plan to get vaccinated and boosted when you are able to.
  • Stay home if at all possible, and do not leave your house if you are sick.
  • Wear a facemask over your mouth and nose when in public. If possible, wear a respirator-style mask (N95, KN95, KN94).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If you can't wash your hands, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick, and make sure to put distance between yourself and other people if the virus is spreading in your community.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes - use your elbow, not your hands!
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces you touch often during the day.
