Current #flu AND #coronavirus #outbreak info available from @CDCemergency and @CDCFlu. Also see https://flu.gov and https://cdc.gov/coronavirus/
A webinar would be excellent. Someone from ALA would be great since they already have something in place. I'm checking with the Cleveland Clinic to see if someone there could be part of a panel.
