If you have any questions, such as about the basics of the disease or how COVID-19 spreads, it’s worth checking out their FAQ page as well for a long list of answers to commonly asked questions about coronavirus.
U.S. Department of State
The U.S. Department of State has its own coronavirus resource page where you’ll find even more links to reputable sources. What’s particularly helpful here is the information on Travel Advisories and enrolling in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), which is a useful resource for staying informed about any new updates that might affect your travel plans.
FEMA, short for Federal Emergency Management, has devoted a whole page on its website to Rumor Control. It’s a good idea to scroll through these questions if you’ve come across any information that leaves you wondering how true it really is.
