During this constantly evolving COVID-19 situation, it is more important than ever to direct media to this team to ensure we are providing accurate information and consistent messaging.
Many of you have been sharing information on social media channels about your personal experiences and thoughts on how our system is responding to COVID-19. Unfortunately, not all of the information has been accurate. Our goal as a system is to provide consistent and accurate information that helps the public better understand COVID-19 and to assure the community of our preparedness. Please review the UW Medicine Compliance Social Media Policy and Social Media Guidance. Please think twice before you post.
