COVID-19 and Racial Inequities Part 2
Online via ZOOM
Each day, the COVID-19 news reminds us of how people of color are negatively impacted. Some of us have good health insurance and the luxury of being able to practice social distancing in our housing and communities. Many people do not. The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly brought to the surface some of the inequities our communities of color are experiencing. Please join us ONLINE for our Monthly Community Meeting, along with Dr. Jim Sanders, Clinical Psychologist, to delve more into how Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACES) informs us about the impacts on those with predisposed mental and physical health conditions, often stemmed from years of systemic racism.

In addition, there are several steps that you can take to reduce your chances of exposure and to protect others:
Stay home if you are sick.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue and then throw the tissue in the trash.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
Clean and disinfect surfaces that are often touched.
