CDC recently updated COVID-19 tools to help people understand which actions can protect themselves and others. Keep these online resources handy to find out what your real-time risks are and how to stay safe. 

COVID-19 Toolbox

CDC’s COVID-19 tools are regularly updated with the latest information, data, and guidance. Many of these tools connect to resources in several languages.

Vaccine Finder: Find COVID-19 vaccine or booster locations near you, then call or visit their website to make an appointment.

Find Free Masks (N95 Respirators): Find a list of pharmacies that provide free masks (N95 respirators) by using this tool, then check with the location for availability.

Interactive Ventilation Tool: Decrease the level of COVID-19 virus particles during and after a guest visits your home. See how particle levels change as you adjust ventilation settings in your home.

COVID-19 County Check: Find COVID Community Levels in your county and find out which prevention steps to take based on the levels in your area and your own risk of severe illness.

COVID Data Tracker: Get the most recent data on COVID-19 vaccinations, cases, and deaths. Explore COVID-19 data focused on health equity and specific populations. Maps, charts, data, and trends provided by CDC, updates daily by 8 pm ET.

Get Free Self-Tests: Self-tests for COVID-19 give fast results and can be taken anywhere, regardless of your vaccination status or whether or not you have symptoms. Every home in the U.S. is eligible to order two sets of four free at-⁠home tests. If you already ordered your first set, order a second today.

Quarantine and Isolation Calculator: Determine how long you need to isolate, quarantine, or take other steps to prevent spreading COVID-19 if you have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 or have COVID-19. The calculator is intended for a general audience, and does not apply to healthcare or high-risk settings like prisons.

Test to Treat Locator: You must take COVID-19 medication within days of your first COVID-19 symptoms days. COVID-19 medications are now available through your doctor, local pharmacies, and health clinics. Use this tool to find where you can get tested and treated in the same location.

In Case You Missed It: Show Me the Data Webinar

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, recommendations and guidance from CDC have changed based on updated data from a variety of data sources. Learn more by watching the latest CDC’s EPIC webinar: Show me the data! What numbers mean to COVID-19 communications.

During the webinar, CDC experts discussed how CDC evaluates data to give updated recommendations, the sources of the data, and how health equity fits into the framework of an emergency response. You’ll also learn more about where we are in the COVID-19 pandemic, including COVID-19 Community Levels.
