COVID-19 information resources

The world seems exceptionally quiet today. Seattle feels like there’s been another #SnowPocolypse; streets are nearly empty, traffic is virtually non-existent, and grocery stores have somehow run out of seemingly arbitrary things. I’m talking toilet paper, y’all.

With the rapid stream of information coming in, I’ve found it very hard to gather my thoughts on SARS-CoV2 and COVID-19. How do I stay up-to-date without going into a chronic state of panic?

I don’t have an answer, but here are some resources that I have found helpful*:

The general guidelines to avoid community spread are to:

  • wash your hands thoroughly and frequently (we all know some 20-second -chorus songs by now)
  • maintain social distancing (introverts, rejoice!)
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose (which is somehow completely impossible)
  • cough or sneeze into your elbow
  • stay home if you feel sick
  • DON’T BE RACIST (can’t believe it has to be said)

So yeah, go wash your hands, take care of yourself and each other, and don’t panic.

I said, don’t panic!
