Environmental Health & COVID-19 Resource Roundup: March 31

Mar 31, 2021 | Anu Varma

NACCHO has been releasing bi-weekly blogs consisting of an up-to-date collection of novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) resources for our members working at the intersection of environmental health and COVID-19. See past resource roundups here.

From the Brown School of Public Health and the Rockefeller Foundation

  • The COVID-19 Testing Communications Toolkit is a free, public resource for anyone looking to communicate the importance of COVID-19 testing to communities across America. Our evidence-based tutorials, handouts, and image library help you translate public health goals into motivating, clear messages that educate Americans about why, when, and where to get tested — even if they feel healthy. These materials are available in multiple languages.

From NACCHO

  • Environmental Health & COVID-19 at Preparedness Summit 2021: Local health officials ensure access to safe water, and sanitary/hygienic conditions always, but these efforts are especially critical during pandemics. NACCHO will be joined by local health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at the 2021 Preparedness Summit to share lessons learned in WASH during the COVID-19 pandemic, so register today!
  • A safe return to in-person learning for students nationwide with a simple, easy COVID-19 testing solution: Schools have successfully implemented safety precautions, such as social distancing, hand washing, and screeners, but it is more important than ever to be aware of COVID-19 cases on campus that are not detected by temperature or symptoms. This is achieved through a regular and comprehensive testing protocol. This webinar on April 1 at 3 pm ET will introduce the Thermo Fisher-Color Health partnership and simplified solution that makes on site student testing accessible to schools. This webinar is open to all members of local health departments as well as other community partners who are interested in this topic.
  • COVID-19 Vaccination and Reaching People with Disabilities: AUCD, ASTHO and NACCHO invite you to attend a series of webinars: COVID-19 Vaccination and Reaching People with Disabilities on March 30, March 31, April 7, and April 8 from 1:00 to 2:00pm ET. Join our organizations, state-level jurisdictions, and CDC guests to hear about promising practices on how states are reaching people with disabilities. Learn more and register.
