Resource Summary: This MCN blog post serves to provide answers to many of the frequently asked questions we have received concerning Farmworker Health and COVID-19.

Resource Details: Given many overlapping concerns and pressures, it is very difficult for farmworkers to heed the recommendations to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Clinicians, including outreach workers and community health workers, are tasked to remove as many barriers as possible to support workers to be able to continue their work and stay healthy. Growers also have a responsibility to extend labor practices, health policies, and housing protocols. This FAQ is built to equip you with information and strategies to do just that, to the best of our abilities at this very difficult and unprecedented moment in time.
