As governments work to build digital responses to the coronavirus (COVID-19), one aspect of this is a need for web icons that support text-based communications.
ProudCity uses the Font Awesome to make it easy for our government partners to add icons into website pages.
To support coronavirus-related communications, Font Awesome recently added and curated COVID-19-specific icons to its set:
How to add coronavirus-related icons
The coronavirus-related icons can be accessed from these ProudCity widgets:
- Icon link
- Icon set
‘Icon link’ and ‘Icon set’ widgets
The ‘Icon link’ and ‘Icon set’ widgets allow for linkable icons to specific pages. To access them, simply type “covid” into the font picker search.
The ‘Text’ widget allows for website managers to add non-linked icons using the Font Awesome code. Sample code:
<p><i class="far fa-address-card fa-4x"></i></p>
These icons were added in our latest release and are now available to all of our government partners for their ProudCity-powered websites.
