The U.S. Health and Human Services confirmed launching its own COVID-19 information portal on March 30, 2022. The new COVID.gov website's theme is 'Find COVID-19 guidance for your community.'

The White House says 'COVID.gov will provide one-stop shopping for all things COVID-19.'

'Among the site's features is a tool that lets people find out the infection status in their county.'

'Users can also find out where to get a vaccine, see locations that participate in the "test-to-treat" program where people who test positive can immediately get oral treatment, and locate places to get free masks.'

The government's new site also includes weblinks to order free at-home tests.

The primary advantage for consumers is the previously published U.S. CDC clinical information is more user-friendly and secure.

Note: Official websites use a '.gov' URL which indicates it belongs to an official government organization in the United States.
