COVID-19 Information & Resources
As with any global event, a lot of misinformation is making its way around.
"...fighting misinformation with accurate information is a library's purpose." (Lisa G. Rosenblum, Director of King County Library System)
Our librarians have put together this list of factual information and resources to help keep you informed regarding COVID-19.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has also put together a COVID-19 resources page where they post daily updates. WHO also addresses some of the most common myths surrounding the coronavirus and corrects those myths with facts.
The Louisiana Department of Health takes a look at the COVID-19 outlook for the state of Louisiana and the Louisiana Office of the Governor posts regular updates from Louisiana Governor, John Bel Edwards.
The State Library of Louisiana also has put together a Louisiana Public Library Emergency Status Blog to keep you up to date on the status of your library within Louisiana.
