Covid Action Group Mission Statement
Our objective is to save lives and livelihoods. There is no tradeoff.
Proactive prevention is better than reactive mitigation.
Compassion motivates us, science guides us.
Science tells us the consequences of actions, policies and strategies, now and in the future.
The world is what we choose to make of it.
We build trust by saying the truth.
We oppose those who diminish the value of life, sacrifice our loved ones though lack of caring, exploit others or their injury for their own benefit, promote falsehood, misinform out of confusion, intentionally disinform, or distract from what is important.
We oppose poor or coopted science, wrong assumptions, false claims and wishful thinking.
We empower those who join in our efforts in teams of collaboration. Everyone who aspires to make the world a better place can join us, using their unique talents, abilities and knowledge.
We value each individual’s abilities, knowledge and contributions to society and to others individually in the connected tapestry of humanity.
Who We Are
We are a multidisciplinary global network of experts created as a people’s task force. Our mission is to end the spread of COVID-19 by mobilizing science and compassion into action, advising policymakers and empowering communities with practical strategies to eliminate COVID-19. We are dedicated to protecting health and wellbeing, and restoring the economy.
The world is in crisis due to the deadly COVID-19 virus and its variants. Defeating COVID-19 requires a coordinated, multifaceted and focused approach. We bring together experts in pandemics, infectious disease, virology, aerosol and environmental science, health care, mental health, risk communications, science education, business, and law, along with mathematics, physics, communications strategy, and community organization.
We are a citizens’ task force sharing science and debunking disinformation. We arm you with the tools you need to make the best choices to keep you, your family, and your community safe. We are YOUR Experts!
What We Believe
We believe we can stop the virus and build a safer and better future. In order to do so communities and nations must take actions informed by science to prevent transmission, and provide community care and support.
An all-hands-on-deck approach is needed to control COVID-19. Here is what we do, and how you can get involved and help spread the message (not the virus).
- Provide practical, science-based, data-driven best practice guidance to leaders and to the public
- Disseminate key messaging and combat disinformation through the most effective channels
- We inform the public on:
- How to keep safe
- How individuals communities and governments can play a role in stopping the spread
- How community members can take care of each other
- Where to turn for help
