#CountyHealth Twitter Chat

Twitter Chat //


Apr 16 2020, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST


As part of County Health Day, when the National Association of Counties is highlighting county solutions and novel approaches to the COVID-19 outbreak, @NACoTweets is hosting this Twitter chat to engage counties in how they are building healthy communities. This dynamic discussion will emphasize the county role in emergency management and preparedness and public health response. We encourage cross-sector discussion of the challenges and best practices associated with addressing an infectious outbreak at the local level.

Participation is easy! @NACoTweets will guide the discussion around a series of questions labeled Q1, Q2, Q3, etc. Respond to the questions using the hashtag (#CountyHealth) and the corresponding A1, A2, A3, etc. for each answer.

  4. What has been your county’s primary source of information regarding the progression of the COVID-19 outbreak?
  5. Are there local impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic that are not receiving enough national attention?
