Have any of you come across any good reader guides on How to Evaluate
Covid-19 Websites and Resources?

Our neighborhood (and city and state) social media is filling up with lists
and recommendations of and links to articles, websites, etc., most with
little attention paid to the source or currency of the information.

I've looked at a few of the Resources for Librarians, but haven't seen
anything that meets my needs. Some have come close, e.g. warnings about
c-19 misinformation, but not quite what I need or have in mind.

I think I'm looking for something like the simple 1 or 2 page handouts on
How to Evaluate a Wikipedia Article or How to Evaluate a News Source.

It also needs to be something that is on a reliable / official
source webpage, so I can link to it from a website, NextDoor, Twitter, etc.

I have been looking at the excellent info at the State Library of Oregon,
but maybe I've missed something in the wealth of resources listed there:

I could make my own but I suspect someone has already created one and I
don't need to reinvent the wheel. I have started compiling a list of
reliable and official resources that I share with neighbors, but that's
still unofficial. (I am willing to share if anyone wants to combine lists.)

Many thanks!
