American Nurse is providing a summary of resources related to COVID-19 and the virus that causes it—severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)—that might be helpful to nurses. We encourage nurses to check the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) websites on a regular basis for the latest information.
