All in This Together

All in This Together

In a few short months, a new disease turned our entire world upside down. We’re still confronting the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic and its disastrous effects. How did we get to this point, and where do we go from here?

All in This Together, a new special exhibition, shows how individual actions affect the community, and how science is used to understand and combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

Explore the facts about COVID-19 and the science behind our most powerful public health tools for fighting the pandemic. Come view a special display from the COVID Memorial Quilt honoring individuals lost. Show your solidarity by sharing what you have done to help fight COVID-19, and explore how other members of the community have done their part.

All in This Together is on display on the second floor as you exit the escalator.

The only way we will defeat this outbreak is for all countries to work together in a spirit of solidarity and cooperation. We are all in this together, and we can only stop it together.

This is the time for facts, not fear.

This is the time for science, not rumors.

This is the time for solidarity, not stigma.
