Coping with COVID-19 – Tip of the Week16 Sep 2020
Unfortunately, with any big news item, there are often sources that spread either fake or misleading information. These days, a lot of both the factual and misleading information is easily accessible via social media.
Information that is not factual about the pandemic is useless and can cause unnecessary concern from readers.
To avoid misleading information, follow only trusted sources on social media for your updates. These could include:
- Federal Government sources, such as @healthgovau on Facebook.
- State Government sources, such as @NewSouthWalesHealth or @ACTHealthDirectorate on Facebook.
- RFBI for updates on the steps we are taking to protect residents in our residential care services (our Facebook handle is @RFBIagedcare).
- The World Health Organization (@WHO) for global updates regarding COVID-19.
If you are uncertain about a source you are reading an update from, always check a trustworthy site as well.
