There is no shortage of information on the current epidemic of Coronavirus infections. Unfortunately, much of that information is misinformation. We offer you the following list in the hopes that you can get the best information on what is going on.
- Your state or local health department: State and local public health agencies are coordinating with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and keeping everyone informed on what is going on. Your state or local health department should have a dedicated web page to distribute information. If they don’t, it would not be a bad idea for you to give them a call and ask.
For example, the City of Philadelphia has their Coronavirus information here: https://www.phila.gov/2020-01-31-novel-coronavirus-and-philadelphia-everything-you-need-to-know/
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has their information here: https://www.health.pa.gov/topics/disease/Pages/Coronavirus.aspx
