It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the barrage of COVID-19 news and information we’re all facing. There’s a lot we still don’t know about COVID-19 (also referred to as the coronavirus), and misinformation spreads quickly, making it challenging to know what sources to trust.

Resources from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are a great place to start if you’re trying to figure out what we know about COVID-19, how to reduce your risk of getting sick, and what to do if you think you’re sick with the novel coronavirus. 

As a knowledge engagement company, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to navigate the information provided by the CDC. We’ve used our own software to create a Bloomfire knowledge base that consolidates updates from the CDC and allows you to search for content by keywords or tags. We’ve also created multiple content series to walk you through some of the most important things to know about COVID-19.

You can explore the knowledge base here. It’s a helpful way, too, to get a feel for our platform’s features. We organize and centralize company information so it’s easily accessible with a simple search—which is especially important today, as so many companies are working from home.

You can also check out an overview of our series, with helpful links to CDC articles, below.
