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.
How to Prepare
With COVID-19 cases now being reported across the U.S., it’s essential to prepare and take precautions to minimize your risk of spreading the virus.

Symptoms and Testing
You should know how COVID-19 symptoms differ from allergies, seasonal flu, and colds—and what to do next if you think you’re experiencing symptoms of the coronavirus.
Stay Informed About the Coronavirus Pandemic
We hope our knowledge base with content sourced directly from the CDC will be a valuable resource for you as well all work together to contain COVID-19. We’ll continue to update the knowledge base with the latest recommendations from the CDC, so keep checking back.
