We also want to caution everyone to be skeptical information you receive, whether in person or over social media. There is good, solid information available, but overall: there are many complex factors that influence what information is available and when, what scientists and researchers are able to conclude from available data and research, and how that information is shared with us. A website created by Mike Caulfield, a digital information literacy expert at Washington State University, is a resource for learning how to verify information: https://infodemic.blog/ It is quick, succinct, and easy to follow. Most importantly, it will equip you with simple, accessible skills to quickly identify false information online.
Take care, stay healthy, and be kind to one another.
