COVID-19 Social Stigma Prevention Guide

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that people who tested positive for COVID-19, have recovered from being sick with COVID-19, or were released from COVID-19 quarantine may experience social stigma. Stigma is associated with a lack of knowledge about how COVID-19 spreads, a need to blame someone, fears about disease and death, and gossip that spreads rumors and myths. Everyone can help stop stigma related to COVID-19 by knowing the facts and sharing them with others in their communities.
