Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information and Resources
There is a lot of conflicting and hard-to-navigate information about COVID-19 online and on social media platforms, as well as a lot of opinion.
We suggest skipping social media and going straight to the source for hard facts.
So, we've compiled a list of resources in English and Arabic for our community, which will be updated and added to regularly as we go through this together.
