Coronavirus rumor control: Do your part


Do your part to the stop the spread of rumors by doing three easy things:

  1. Find trusted sources of information.
  2. Share information from trusted sources.
  3. Discourage others from sharing information from unverified sources.

To find trusted sources, look for information from official public health and safety authorities. You can find official information about COVID-19 at coronavirus.gov, including the latest news and resources for travelers. You can also find answers to your questions about the symptoms, how you can reduce your risk, whether you may travel and how to get financial help.

Check your state and local government or emergency management websites and social media accounts for trusted information specific to your area.


On social media, be sure to check for a blue verified badge next to the account name. This tells you it’s an official account.
