City confronts Covid-19 in Latinx community

Friday, June 12, 2020 by Tai Moses

Public health data indicates a disproportionate number of Covid-19 positive test cases in Austin’s Latinx community. Austin Public Health hopes to lower that number by doing outreach in the community. The effort is being launched with an interactive Facebook Live conversation that will be held in Spanish this Saturday, June 13, 10-11:30 a.m. “Representatives from Austin Public Health and the Latinx community will discuss the impact of Covid-19 in the Latinx community, share available resources and seek input from participants about how the city can make improvements.” The city is planning an additional online forum on Saturday, July 11, “to expand the conversation to all communities of color regarding the impact of Covid-19 and long-term public health challenges.”
