Keeping up with the CDC

By Chad Leonard on November 19, 2020 |


As if inventing new policies and procedures for an entire company isn’t enough in the wake of Coronavirus, the CDC seems to regularly change their guidance on matters surrounding it. I’m not here to say this is unwarranted. It actually makes sense as the world learns more and more about COVID-19. However, keeping up with these changes, since we are all “new to this” can feel puzzling and extremely challenging. How do you stay on top of changes that happen frequently? Especially the ones that directly impact workplace operations and the health / safety of the workforce.

In our day to day, virtual, interactions with customers, we often find out what people do to keep up with the changes. The answers might be more straightforward than you expect.


Spend Time Reading

Read. Read. Read. That’s what our team at Modjoul is encouraged to do. Dedicated time to read about COVID-19 is a great way to stay up to date on all the happenings related to it. If you don’t know where to start, one of my favorite tools is the Apple News widget on my iPhone. There is a special coverage channel dedicated to all things COVID-19. Information is available with a couple swipes and taps, it’s easy to digest, and very informational.


Follow the CDC

In today’s technology driven world, one of the easiest ways to stay up to date on COVID-19 news and changes is by following the CDC on social media. Whether you’re loyal to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or LinkedIn, following the CDC is can take a lot of the legwork out of searching for the news you want to keep up with.

The CDC also has a “Whats New” page on their website where you can keep up with COVID-19 by signing up for email updatessyndicating available content, and subscribing to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 RSS Feed.
