(UPDATED) Community Conversation: Caring for our Vulnerable Populations
While COVID-19 has affected individuals of all ages, genders and races, the virus has been of utmost concern for our more vulnerable communities: seniors, individuals experiencing homelessness, people of color and low-income households. How are these vulnerable groups fairing during the COVID-19 pandemic? And what resources are in place to support these groups as the effects of COVID-19 continue?
Join us for a community conversation as Marin’s top public health experts answer your questions about this important topic.
