Need to Know: COVID-19 Resources

for Professionals to Use in Supporting Communities

Looking for materials to support your community during COVID-19?  Find ready-to-use communication tools from national sources such as the CDC, NCOA, and Ad Council linked below.  Many resources are available in multiple languages and formats including posters/graphics, PSAs, articles, videos and more. In addition, we've found and linked a variety of other resources that are ready-to-use and from reliable sources. We will add to these resources weekly. 


Materials can be used in a variety of ways - be creative!  Are you packing a lot of home-delivered meals?  You could print and add a graphic to the delivery.  Are you connecting via email?  You can add a graphic or article to your message.  Are you communicating via newsletter?  Same thing.  Using social media?  Like and follow the Wisconsin Institute for Healthy Aging Facebook page and share content we post.
