Covid-19 Resources

During this pandemic we have been overloaded with information, much of it confusing, contradictory, based on little data. Below I have tried to list reliable and useful resources and sources of information, some of it for local Sonoma County. I hope this is helpful. If you have other resources you think might helpful that I can add, please feel free to contact me. 


Be safe and well out there!
