COVID-19 Updates

Also available in: Español (Spanish)

As COVID-19 has disrupted so many areas of our daily lives, finding accurate information has become increasingly difficult. In an effort to help we have put this resource together that sources information, in near real time, about COVID-19. Currently we are sourcing information through Twitter from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the GA Department of Public Health. We will add more sources of information moving forward.

To get these updates immediately whey they are posted, follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

There are several local resources available during this time.  You can see a full list of those here.
