UCI and UCI Health launch comprehensive COVID-19 resource site

Section 1

April 22, 2020

I am delighted to announce the launch of OC-COVID19.org, a new website devoted to providing timely, useful, evidence-based information about the novel coronavirus pandemic to our friends and neighbors across Orange County.

UCI and UCI Health are at the forefront of Orange County's response to this national emergency. Every day there are stunning examples of remarkable, cutting-edge clinical care provided by the UCI Health family. Our services are driven by innovation and research taking place across the university. In this way, the UCI community is leading the way to solutions that are local and global.

At OC-COVID19.org, you will find the latest information from expert voices on your health and wellness, testing, clinical trials, policy, technology, education, social issues, as well as insights and analysis on the real-life implications of these developments.

There is appropriate concern and uncertainty about COVID-19; particularly, how we should act today and what our lives will be like in the future. As a premier public institution, UCI is committed to sharing accurate information about the disease and its impact.

Our aspiration is for this new site to be a valued resource that informs, engages, and reassures Orange County residents and those they love.

Stay strong. Stay well.
