Reopening Safely for All Communities
COVID-19 has impacted some communities more than others. They face higher rates of infection and death. These include our Latino, Black, Pacific Islander, low income, and essential worker communities.
Counties must address COVID-19 in all communities to open further, including making sure the positivity rate in certain neighborhoods (health equity metric) do not significantly lag behind overall county positivity rates. These efforts need cross-sector and broad partnerships to succeed. Learn more about this focus on equity.
