COVID-19 Preparedness Tool Kit

Empowering You:

Giving You Tools to Help Your Neighborhoods to Stop COVID-19

We Are Here For You! • COVID-19 Preparedness Tool Kit

A Call Is To Community. Communities are interconnected systems. Actions taken in one sector may have a domino effect. It is critical that community plans account for this interconnection during a health crisis and when the country begins a return to normal activity. Our hearts go out to all who have been impacted by the current COVID-19 outbreak. We are grateful to our leadership and countless first responders and health care providers who are working tirelessly to keep all people safe and healthy.

Caring for You, Your Loved Ones & Our Community. During both the COVID-19 pandemic and its national state of emergency period, traditional disease prevention and control approaches cannot contain the spread of the pandemic. We recognize that no single entity could do this alone. We need everyone to do their part while supporting each other. From this perspective, Drs. Oralia Dominic and Eugene (Gene) Lengerich designed a social support-focused COVID-19 Preparedness Tool Kit to help you, your loved ones, and your neighborhoods to slow the spreading of COVID-19.
