I decided to make this page to help me as I try to keep up with news and changes relating to the Covid-19 Coronovirus outbreak. While I was beginning to put this page together, my son’s school announced they would be closing for the next two weeks, so I have now joined that club of parents who is wondering what to do with their kids the next two weeks and whether I will be able to continue going to work. With that in mind here are those resources.
Florida’s COVID-19 Data and Surveillance Dashboard created by Healthy Florida. Shows number of confirmed cases per county, number of tests performed, number of negative tests.
There is also an international version of this dashboard created by Jonhs Hopkins.
Both of these dashboards allow you to see the spread of the virus in real-time as well as how many tests have been conducted and how many deaths have occurred.

Read about Self-Quarantine Manifesto and a good breakdown of the reasons why we have to take this seriously at #StayTheFuckHome, A Movement to Stop the Covid-19 Pandemic.
WLRN, the public radio station and public television station in my area has a post that is continuously updated with news about the Covid-19 outbreak as it relates to South Florida. They also have a running list of cancelled events.
