The coronavirus (COVID-19) has had vast impacts across the United States, and Nevada is no exception. Over the course of 2020, the COVID-19 crisis has unfolded right before us, resulting in physical, mental, and economic impacts.
However, some of these impacts have disproportionately impacted racial and ethnic minorities and other vulnerable communities.
Our primary goal is to reduce the spread in Nevada, with specific emphasis on communities at greatest risk, including African American/Black, Hispanic, Native American, Asian, Pacific Islander, LGBTQ+, and those who are deaf or hard of hearing.
The One Community education and outreach campaign aims to:
Provide a central location in which communities leaders and members can obtain reliable information about COVID-19;
Engage community leaders and members as active participants in COVID-19 education and outreach;
Engage the community in a larger conversation about COVID-19 to discuss impacts, perceptions, concerns, challenges, and next steps; and
Disseminate information through various printed and digital sources that will best reach the 7 target communities.
The One Community campaign acknowledges that we can not do this work alone. To reduce the risks for all these groups, we must act as #OneCommunity in our response.
