UTK Tickle College of Engineering is developing a public-facing FAQ at tickle.utk.edu/coronavirus for all audiences. At that link, you can submit ideas for information to share as well as any questions you may have. The college is working closely with UT leadership to ensure information is accurate.

Also, the World Health Organization (WHO) has a thorough page about Covid-19 that is constantly being updated.  https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019

Social distancing is difficult, but very important. The Washington Post has created a page titled "Why outbreaks like coronavirus spread exponentially, and how to “flatten the curve.”  The page gives simulations that explain the importance of physical distancing well. Take take a look
