(UNDATED) – Google knows how quickly information is changing when it comes to COVID-19 gripping our communities as we all struggle against this pandemic.
Google, working with the relevant agencies, launched a nationwide website in the United States — available at google.com/covid19 — as well as an expanded Google search experience for COVID-19.
The new website is focused on education, prevention and local resources for COVID-19. People can find state-based resources, safety and prevention tips, search trends related to COVID-19, as well as, additional resources for individuals, educators, and businesses. Google is expanding its COVID-19 Search experience. The new format will make it easier to find information as it becomes available.
The new experience links to national and local authorities, as well as, the Twitter pages of local civic and health organizations. A new feature will surface some of the most common questions about the pandemic, with relevant information sourced from the WHO and the CDC.
Additionally, people who look for urgent care, hospitals and other medical services on Google Search or Maps will receive an alert reminding them of the CDC’s recommendation that symptomatic individuals call ahead to avoid overwhelming the health systems and increasing exposure.
