COVID-19: Resources For Our Community

COVID-19 Resources

As of January 2021, Latinos accounted for over 30% of the nation’s COVID-19 cases despite making up less than 20% of the current population, were eight times more likely to be hospitalized, and were almost four times more likely to die from the virus when compared to white Americans. The impact of the virus has been disproportionate and devastating in Latino communities, and as promising vaccines arrive on the market, American Latinos must be adequately informed about them and have access to these life-saving treatments.

The resources below will be updated periodically, as new information becomes available. To stay up-to-date on the latest trends, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
