COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). It can result in severe respiratory damage. Different countries have recommended different combinations of protections during the COVID-19 pandemic. Various combinations of mitigation strategies or “layered protections” against coronavirus have also been communicated differently across nations. This mixed-methods content analysis seeks to compare COVID-19 mitigation information on three national health agency websites for Taiwan, Kenya, and the United States. Availability and navigability of information was examined for each mitigation strategy. The Web Resource Rating tool was used to assess the quality of the information about health protections provided on each website. Findings included available information on all health protections in all three countries. However, navigation to and quality of information on some mitigation strategies varied across countries.
