In order to stop the spread of false information, and hopefully cut down on the influx of worried-well at Kansas healthcare facilities, the "Where to Find What You Need Regarding COVID-19" Fact Sheet was developed.
The fact sheet contains a list of credible information sources and was developed with the intent of distribution to the General Public. Please share widely.
