Social distancing seemed a bit abstract in its effectiveness. This article's infographic was extremely simple and, to my eyes, even optimistic in showing the impact of a step like social distancing to flatten the curve.

Did this resource motivate you to change your behaviors?

  • Yes

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

It helped me become a neutral follower of social distancing to an active promoter of it. It also helped me shift my perspective to social distancing being merely a physical limitation, by reducing my physical presence I actually started increasing my digital and virtual presence with others (via phone calls, face time, and scheduled connections to look forward to)

Where are you getting information around COVID-19?

  • News: Digital

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

I almost feel like I'm drowning in COVID-19 related information and I know there are a lot of questions. I would like to see COVID reported cases by county, rather than by state. State is too broad for something that transmits within 6 feet.

I would love to see profiles on how we successfully fought past epidemics, the stories of success. Even if it is unique from how we'll fight this one, I think it would be optimistic.

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

Audiences of radicalized/politicized media

Individuals who avoid news

Homeless population

Sr. Project Manager—learning and training
