Washington, D.C., June 29, 2020 – APHA is compiling the latest evidence-based information on COVID-19 into one, easy-to-navigate spot.

COVIDGuidance.org shares up-to-date, science-based information and tools from credible sources. Topics include guidance on reopening, personal and community prevention tips, workplace safety guidance, and recommendations for safe voting and returning to school.

“Every day, we’re being hit with mixed messages and misinformation about COVID-19, and that’s a real danger to our ability to contain the virus,” said Georges C. Benjamin, MD, executive director of APHA. “We launched COVIDGuidance.org to help everyone easily find information that’s based on sound science and public health recommendations.”

The compilation of resources is designed to help communities, individuals and policymakers to make informed decisions about COVID-19. The resource organizes rapidly updated guidance and recommendations from trusted sources, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization and Johns Hopkins University.

A Spanish-language site, www.COVIDGuia.org, is scheduled to go live in the coming weeks.

Access and bookmark the new resource page at COVIDGuidance.org.
