New Resource: BLOC COVID Video Series

Jul 06, 2022 | Jaclyn Abramson, Candice Young

BLOC COVID-19, Building Local Operational Capacity for COVID-19, is a demonstration site project that was launched to support local health departments (LHDs) in building their infection prevention and control capacity. After the first year of this project, a video series was developed from interviews with funded sites to highlight the LHD’s lessons learned, best practices, tools developed, and provide associated resources to prevent and respond to COVID-19 in various high-risk settings for others to consider in their capacity building efforts. The series consists of 7 videos, each no more than 10 minutes.
