Myths Are Like Viruses – Don’t Let Them Spread!

Before you share that article on Facebook, look at the source of it. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is a federal agency that is the leading source of information on COVID-19 in the United States. That’s where YKHC and many other hospitals and organizations are getting their information from on COVID-19, and you should too. Please don’t share information you don’t know to be true or doesn’t come from a credible source, like the CDC or the State of Alaska.

Not only are myths about COVID-19 wrong, they can be dangerous. There is no indication the virus can be killed by gargling salt water and home remedies, like boiling pine needles, are not effective disinfectants. Follow the CDC’s guidance on cleaning and disinfecting.

Make sure information you share with others is true. COVID-19 is highly contagious, so we can all do our part to make sure everyone has the best information to protect ourselves and our families.
