COVID-19: Home [COVID-19]

This guide contains public health information and federal, state, and county government information sources for COVID-19 information.

This guide contains links to public health information, and international, federal, state, and county government information sources about the Coronavirus now popularly known as COVID-19. Information about the virus changes rapidly. We recommend frequently checking the Center For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and USA.GOV websites for the most up-to-date information. Links to both are included in this Library Guide.


WHERE TO START:  This URL links to the top federal government websites for current COVID-19 information: the latest stimulus payment information, governmental health and safety sites, jobs & unemployment, money & taxes, travel & immigration, voting & elections, and benefits, grants, and loans.



This website is a work in progress that is updated in real time, and shows how every state is controlling the COVID-19 epidemic and progressing toward reopening. The creators are a non-partisan group of public health and crisis experts with former experience working at the White House, Department of Health and Human Services, and on the Ebola epidemic in West Africa. Source material comes from the CDC and the COVID Tracking Project, among other reliable sources. (Editor's Note: the site states, "Unfortunately we cannot track how states are deploying contact tracing programs because that data is not reported yet. We also lack data sources for how states are implementing safe quarantine spaces. Once that data is available, we'll incorporate it.")



On April 15, 2020, the COVID-19 Tracking Project  launched the COVID Racial Data Tracker, a partnership between the COVID Tracking Project and The Antiracist Research & Policy Center that collects, publishes, and analyzes racial data on the pandemic within the United States.The COVID Tracking Project ( is a volunteer organization launched from The Atlantic and dedicated to collecting and publishing the data needed to "understand the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States." Continuously published since its founding in 1857, The Atlantic is an American literary and cultural commentary magazine known for publishing literary pieces by leading writers. Its website provides daily coverage and analysis of breaking news, politics and international affairs, education, technology, health, science, and culture.
