During COVID-19, it’s more important than ever to ensure the information you’re accessing and sharing is reliable. You can learn more about health literacy, why it matters, and who is more likely to struggle with it here.

Here is an easy to use checklist you can share.

MedlinePlus is a consumer health site by the National Institutes of Health and is always a good choice for reliable health information. It includes diseases, prescription drugs, and supplements. All articles and links on Medline Plus are vetted, reliable sources.
