The best source of information I have seen is physical measures or concrete steps that seem to indicate what is expected from people. For example, tape to block bus drivers from passengers and supermarkets only accepting credit cards are simple steps that are easy to do and also create awareness about what behavior is expected. Like little nudges. 

Did this resource motivate you to change your behaviors?

  • Yes

In what ways did you change your behaviors as a result of this resource?

Since it altered the way I approached things normally, it forced me to pay more attention to why I had to do things differently and therefore made me more aware about how my actions could influence others regarding the virus.

Did you share this information with your network?

  • No

Where are you getting information around COVID-19?

  • National Government
  • News: Television
  • News: Digital
  • Social Media
  • WHO (World Health Organization)

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

There is a lot of information about the problems that have arise due to the virus such as hospital staff being short on masks but not a lot of information about how people can contribute to solving the problem such as by donating their masks to the hospital. Information about such actions is limited so people don't know where to start on a regional as well as national level.
