State Health Department Websites



We're all getting bombarded with a 24-7 running news cycle discussing Covid-19. I've always found going straight to the source is the easiest way to dissect information, namely state health departments who are required to report the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Below is a list of all 50 state health departments and their individual pages for Covid-19 updates. I've also included quick links to each state health department's investigation into vaping-related lung illnesses. Stay safe out there! Lindsey
