I was asked by a friend what I’m doing to stay informed on #COVID19.
Tip 1. Avoid cable news at all costs (all of it).
Tip 2. Watch live White House/NIH briefings when possible to get everything in context.
Tip 3: Download a local news app to skim headlines and stay informed on your homefront.
Tip 4. Bookmark the crap out of https://coronavirus.gov and read up.
Tip 5: Follow the CDC, the National Institute of Allergy and Infections Disease, and NIH Director Francis Collins on Twitter.
One other thing. While it’s very true that COVID-19 is no run-of-the-mill flu and should thus be taken very seriously, it’s also not cause for the complete hysteria that’s gripped so many people in our country. This will pass, and we as a community will get through it. Here’s a great video from Dave Ramsey explaining why I feel this way.
Hope it helps, gang. Y’all stay safe out there and keep washing those hands. To borrow a line from Raiders of the Lost Ark, “our top men are working on this.”
