Best info

I have used this app to stay up to date on Covid since the initial outbreak. Not once have I felt the general anxiety out there because I felt informed and because I was informed I knew what to do. That isn’t necessarily a guarantee, but I continue to follow the guidelines here and am at peace knowing I am doing all that I can. Thank you for this invaluable service. I will continue to share with colleagues, friends, and loved ones.

Developer Response ,

Wonderful app for first responders and healthcare workers, nurses, and doctors.

My Mom was an RN from ‘67, an EdD, and she was Dean of Nusing at Lewis University until she retired in her late ‘60s. My Daughter is an MA with three courses to go for her RN. I started working for Civil Defense in ‘67, today I work for TINLEY Park EMA, and do consulting for several Federal Agencies and DOD.

We all find the app and it’s content incredibly invaluable.
