About Me

Hello, my name is Alex Guigar. My pronouns are they/them. I go to Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia and the COVID TLDR is my senior project. I wanted to do my part in stopping the spread of misinformation surrounding the covid pandemic. I could wax poetic here about a sense of noble duty to keep the people informed and safe. Honestly, I was just tired of hearing the same repeated misinformation about what can be a deadly situation for people. I know people either can’t be bothered or maybe aren’t able to read a lot of the new information coming out, and either way I don’t really blame them. Not to repeat what I say in the website intro, but that stuff is really boring. Unfortunately, it’s super important too. So I made something to meet people in the middle, it’s a bunch of the really fundamental stuff about covid and the pandemic, boiled down and super informal. And, for the extra-achievers, sources to branch out into their own research. At the end of the day, all I want the COVID TLDR to be is an easy website where you can make a quick fact check, read up on something in a few seconds, or watch a quick cover video to get the basics of what’s going on before you go back to what you were doing. Hope you can find something informative and arm yourself with a little knowledge out there. Stay healthy and stay safe.
