The COVID-19 situation is constantly changing, and it is essential you stay up to date on the response to the pandemic.
To maintain accurate situational awareness, you must actively seek, consistently monitor, and cross-reference information from multiple sources. Situational awareness is simply knowing what is going on around you, but it needs to be planned, systematic and maintained. Without those key actions, it is very easy to lose your situational awareness.
However, it does not have to be obsessive or excessive. Vigilance is a good strategy, but hyper-vigilance can be harmful by causing you to become unnecessarily stressed and distressed.
