COVID-19 Resources for Local Health Departments (June 1-5)

Jun 05, 2020 | Kim Rodgers

News from NACCHO

  • In response to the recent police killings of Black Americans, NACCHOreleased a statement addressing racism as a public health issue that creates toxic stress and impacts the health of Black children, families, and communities. From centuries of racist violence to the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 – which is killing Black Americans at 2.4 times the rate of Whites – America’s legacy of racial, economic, and social oppression is devasting Black communities. We believe that local health departments (LHDs) can and must support Black communities in expressing their voice and building power to act on the unjust systems, processes, and decisions creating health inequities.
  • Last week, NACCHO released new data documenting the impact of the COVID-19 response on important food safety programs that regulate, inspect, and license food service establishments, provide food safety education, and respond to outbreaks of food-borne illness.
  • On June 3, NACCHO announced a new funding opportunity, Building Local Operational Capacity for COVID-19 (BLOC COVID-19), to strengthen infection prevention and control capacity at LHDs. Applications are due July 1.
