What does 2021 look like through a public health lens?

Some good news is that vaccines are here and have started to make their way into the arms of frontline workers and high-risk communities. Many states continue to see virus cases rise, and there is understandable anxiety around vaccination timelines.

It remains essential to have fact-based, current information, and to be vigilant about what science demands of us: wearing masks, socially distancing, and frequent hand-washing. Read the LINK article below on COVID-19 relief efforts by the new Biden-Harris administration.
