The best resources I have found are to listen to what everyone is saying and find the middle ground of the extremists. I listen to many different news sources, local (WECT) National (CNN, Fox) and Global (BBC, World News Tonight). By making sure that I listen to a conglomeration of news agencies, I feel like I believe what I hear repeated by each of them. I also listen to hear from countries that have come through some of the illness already and what they found effective.

Where are you getting information around COVID-19?

  • Local Government
  • National Government
  • News: Television
  • News: Digital
  • News: Radio
  • Social Media
  • WHO (World Health Organization)
  • Word of Mouth

What information do you feel you are missing about COVID-19?

How to properly clean the items we bring home from grocery stores.

What populations or personas are not currently being addressed with today’s COVID-19 information?

I am glad that all bars and restaurants are closing, because it will stop the reckless younger people from going out. I just hope that they do not begin coming down with the virus because they thought they were immune.
