We’ve put together a coronavirus cheat sheet, detailing all of the contacts and outlets that will best help you to navigate the murky waters of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We get it. Self-isolation is the pits and it’s not helped by the constant dribble of sensationalist Instagram videos and fearmongering opinion pieces that are circulating through the digital ether.

In response, we’ve decided to put together a crib sheet, with all of the contacts and outlets you need to best navigate the murky, infected waters of the C-word.

Our aim is to make this the most comprehensive set of contacts going, which is why we want your help. If you notice anything remiss or you think there’s something we should know about, reach out by email: [email protected].

We’ll add relevant suggestions and keep this page updated as the situation unfolds. We know it’s a pretty tight edit at the moment, but together we can make something really useful. Thanks for being on board.
