RELIABLE SOURCES ON COVID-19

With a large amount of information out about the COVID-19 pandemic we have recognised that it can be difficult to locate reliable and trustworthy sources of information.

 

Here we have put together a list of links to reliable sources of information, tools, checklists and other resources regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. These sources include where to go for help, how to help reduce the spread of infection, and what is happening with support in the mental health sector. 

 

We will continually update this as we come across new sources.

Fact from fiction
The Conversation has a list of COVID-19 Questions and Answers as well as a lot more information about COVID-19. All articles are written by people who have the expertise to give the most accurate advice available. It also contains opinion pieces.

 

Sadly, the ACSC Australian Cyber Security Centre has advised that they are aware of Covid-19 themed scams being distributed via text message (among other means) offering additional advice on testing. We urge people to be cautious of clicking on links that maybe from scammers. Official text messages from Government will never contain web-links.
