The library is committed to the health and safety of our customers and with sharing information, especially in times of emergencies. We’ve set up this page as a resource to help you find reliable and up-to-date information from local, state, and national resources about Coronavirus (COVID-19).
As new information emerges about COVID-19, it is important to remember that it is not connected to race, ethnicity, or nationality. Stigma will not help to fight the illness; however, sharing accurate information from trusted sources such as the following is critical to keeping misinformation at bay.
Reliable sources of information include:
- CDC website (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/index.html)
- World Health Organization website (https://www.who.int/health-topics/coronavirus)
- Washington State Department of Health (https://www.doh.wa.gov/Emergencies/Coronavirus) or call 1-800-525-0127 and then press #
- Spokane Regional Health District (https://srhd.org/)
