APHA curates COVID-19 tips and information geared toward Hispanic/Latino communities
APHA is compiling the latest evidence-based information on COVID-19 into one, easy-to-navigate spot.
COVIDGuia.org is a Spanish-language resource that shares up-to-date, science-based information and tools from credible sources. Topics include guidance on reopening, personal and community prevention tips, workplace safety guidance, and recommendations for safe voting and returning to school. It is the sister site to COVIDGuidance.org, an English-language site that was launched last month.
“Every day, we’re being hit with mixed messages and misinformation about COVID-19, and that’s a real danger to our ability to contain the virus,” said José Ramón Fernández-Peña, MD, MPA, president-elect of the American Public Health Association. “We launched COVIDGuia.org to help everyone easily find information that’s based on sound science and public health recommendations.”
The compilation of resources developed in collaboration with the Latinx COVID-19 Task Force is designed to help communities, individuals and policymakers to make informed decisions about COVID-19. The resource organizes rapidly updated guidance and recommendations from trusted sources, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization and Johns Hopkins University.
