My Saved COVID-19 Articles

Personal

There is no shortage of articles/podcasts/TV shows/YouTube videos covering COVID-19 pandemic.  Sadly, I'm finding that most of the coverage is unhelpful finger-pointing and fear-mongering.  I've saved a handful of articles over the last month on a variety of topics ranging from food safety to caring for a loved one who is sick.  I thought I'd share a handful of what I've saved. 

Of course, information is changing daily, and I'm guessing some of the advice in these articles may already be dated.  For official updates on the pandemic, visit cdc.gov.
