COVID. KNOW MORE.

Health disparities left Black Americans vulnerable to contracting COVID-19 and dying from it at higher rates, nearly two times greater than their share of the population. Black students, businesses, employees, and homeowners have all been hit hard by the pandemic.

Use this up-to-date research, resources, and stories to help ease the uncertainties and safeguard your community. With the facts, we can all make the best decisions for ourselves and our families.

68% of Black Americans know someone who has died of COVID-19. 

RECENT MASK MANDATE UPDATE

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently updated mask-wearing guidance, advising that fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks in certain environments. While the new federal guidance is an assurance to those who are vaccinated that they can feel safe, it's still highly recommended that others who have not been vaccinated, including adults and children, wear masks in public settings — at events and gatherings, and anywhere they will be around other people.

What's next?

Even as the country reopens, vulnerable communities continue to battle not only the long-term health implications, but the economic and social implications of the pandemic. As states and municipalities lift restrictions and public health mandates, we must ensure that individuals have the information they need to make the best decisions for themselves and their families.
