Facebook's new Coronavirus (Covid-19) Information Center
Facebook

Facebook recently added a Coronavirus (Covid-19) Information Center to its mobile application, which allows you to see the latest news, tips and more related to the coronavirus. As part of this feature, you can “follow” updates related to the coronavirus, so that you’ll be notified when new posts are added to the Information Center. Our guide will show you how this is done.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Facebook application on iOS.

Step 1: Tap the three horizontal lines in the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Step 2: On the “Covid-19 Information Center” panel, tap “Learn More.” Or, if you previously closed this panel, tap the “Covid-19 Information Center” icon.

Step 3: Tap “Follow” at the top of the screen to receive notifications when new posts are added to the Information Center.
