Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Information Center



Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Information Center

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).

There is a significant amount of information online.  So much information that it is confusing.  Therefore, we have created Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Information Central to “centralize” the content for convenience.

This virus has changed the way we live our lives.  It is possible that these changes could be permanent.  Knowledge will help consumers make good decisions.  Until more is known, “extreme caution” is critical and highly recommended.  This virus is now classified as a “pandemic.”

We are NOT physicians! Please do NOT interpret our content to be “medical advice.”  Our objective is to help you navigate thru the overwhelming amount of information available online regarding coronavirus.  We will direct you to what is considered the best information available.
