Resources to stay engaged, informed and active

Stay active, engaged, and vigilant amid the coronavirus concern. Here are the easy-reference COVID-19 resources we've shared, in one place for you and your family.


As concerns over the spread and impact of COVID-19 continue, Nebraskans – like most Americans – continue to physically distance, work from home if they are so fortunate, and take defensive measures against the virus if they must go out. All the while, we’re still navigating work, family, and community as life, even amid a new normal, goes on.

Let’s be honest. It’s a lot. That’s why during the early days of the pandemic, we regularly assembled and shared informational and learning resources on social media each afternoon to ensure Nebraskans could stay connected and up to date on the situation.

While we’ve tapered those daily social-media updates to avoid needless repetition, those resources remain relevant today as we all continue down our common path. So we’ve collected them, packaged them, and are sharing them with you for easy reference:

>Our COVID-19 News & Information Resources Page has several links to articles, videos, and interactive dashboards that present the pandemic in a factual light. Beyond educating ourselves about this pandemic, we must remain vigilant in protecting ourselves against the accompanying infodemic, a wave of misinformation by reckless actors that is just as dangerous.

>At our COVID-19 At-Home Tools Page, we’ve collected all of the links we have shared on our social channels about online learning and enrichment resources for all ages; links to fun interactive activities for children; and, importantly, advice and skills to protect your mental health and manage stress during this unprecedented time.

>Last, on a lighter note, if you’re interested in our staff picks for documentaries, popular music, short articles, and historical dramas to pass some time during the pandemic, we hope you enjoy our recent Democracy’s Dozen recommendations.

We are strong, Nebraska, and we’ll get through this together. Stay informed, stay connected, stay active, and stay vigilant. Better days are ahead.
