ABSTRACT

Sentinel Communities Insights: 'Spotlight on COVID-19' Emerging Themes Across Communities   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "Since 2016, the Sentinel Communities project [hyperlink] has monitored activities on health, well-being, and health equity across 29 communities. As the nation confronts the impact of the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic and the legacy of racial inequities that the disease highlights, it is an opportunity to review how diverse communities across the United States are planning for, mitigating, and recovering from the effects of the pandemic. This project takes a deeper look at nine of the Sentinel Communities and explores how prior efforts to address health and health equity, along with the relative impact of COVID-19 in each community, have influenced whether and how each community has responded to this pandemic. Information is quickly evolving and findings in this first report and the corresponding nine Sentinel Community summaries describe community responses to COVID-19 through early June 2020. Future reports, developed every few months, will further document the response and recovery of these communities."
