Dear Pandemic

Finding credible, up-to-date, practical information about the COVID-19 pandemic can be an overwhelming and time-consuming task for people who just want answers to questions such as: Do I need a vaccine booster shot? Is it safe to swim in a public pool? When should I wear a mask, according to the latest guidelines? The all-woman interdisciplinary team of researchers and clinicians behind Dear Pandemic aims to provide readers with quick and easy access to curated, fact-based, straightforward information and updates about the pandemic. The project began on Facebook (@DearPandemic), and that remains the best place to follow the most recent posts (as well as the recently launched Spanish-language page @QueridaPandemia). The Dear Pandemic website has some features that make it easier to sort through previous posts. On the homepage, readers can enter their question into the search bar or click "Browse Recent Posts" to navigate to the Posts page. On that page, readers can explore posts dating back to May 1, 2020, organized into categories such as School, Travel, Masks, and Posts en Espanol. Readers are also welcome to submit their own question or subscribe to the Substack newsletter, both linked on the homepage. Readers who scroll to the Who We Are section can click "Read Our Bios" to learn more about the team of volunteers behind the project, whose expertise spans the fields of nursing, mental health, demography, health policy, health economics, and epidemiology.
