Two places to share and record your stories:
How to Evaluate Covid-19 Resources:
I created this list for my Oregon librarian community (and with their invaluable assistance) but others may find the list useful.

Did you know that the two trillion (and counting) dollar coronavirus (Covid-19) law started out as a January 24, 2019, revenue bill out of the House of Representatives? (HR 748, 116th Congress, 2019-2020)?

You can go directly to the Law Library of Congress “Coronavirus Resource Guide” or if you want additional information on what Congress is doing, visit Congress dot gov. (You can link on Law Library News from there, too.)
“This is intended as a guide to laws, regulations and executive actions in the United States, at both the federal and the state level, and in various countries with respect to the new coronavirus and its spread. We are also including links to Congressional Research Service (CRS) reports ….” [Link to Law Library of Congress blog post for more information and updates.]
