Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources

Center for Disease Control (CDC)

CDC works 24/7 to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same.

CDC increases the health security of our nation. As the nation’s health protection agency, CDC saves lives and protects people from health threats. To accomplish our mission, CDC conducts critical science and provides health information that protects our nation against expensive and dangerous health threats, and responds when these arise.

World Health Organization (WHO)

WHO works worldwide to promote health, keep the world safe, and serve the vulnerable. During health emergencies, they:

  • Prepare for emergencies by identifying, mitigating and managing risks
  • Prevent emergencies and support development of tools necessary during outbreaks
  • Detect and respond to acute health emergencies
  • Support delivery of essential health services in fragile settings.

US Department of State

The Department of State has no greater responsibility than the safety and security of U.S. citizens overseas, including providing information to help U.S. citizens make informed decisions about traveling abroad. Travel recommendations are changing rapidly and the US Department of State is the best resource for travel advisories and recommendations.
