Coronavirus Resource Center
In the wake of recent public health alerts, ISACo has created a clearinghouse dedicated to providing access to factual information about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and up-to-date research on best practices and procedures local leaders should consider for their communities. As of March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) has made the assessment that Coronavirus (COVID-19) can be characterized as a global pandemic. As of March 13, 2020, President Trump has declared COVID-19 a national emergency. It’s best to be well-informed and ready so as to reduce the scope of the spread.
