Coronavirus: ICMA Community Conversations
The COVID-19 pandemic has overwhelmed communities across the U.S. As of June 2020, COVID-19 is known to have infected over 2.3 million people in the U.S., resulting in over 120,000 deaths. Coping with COVID has become a local issue, with city and state leaders working to protect and care for those most vulnerable while exploring ways to safely re-open cities.
Policymakers need granular data to guide their response to COVID by identifying patterns in their communities, targeting resources where they are most needed, and advocating for more federal and state funding to manage the virus and its impact. In this webinar, join the City Health Dashboard to hear about their new COVID Local Risk Index, a new measure of COVID risk and severity for cities - and neighborhoods within them-that provides this needed granular data.
- Learn about and understand the Dashboard’s COVID Local Risk Index, its components and uses
- Learn how the COVID Local Risk Index can help identify vulnerable neighborhoods in your city.
- Explore trends in COVID risk across cities and states
- Use the Index to capture disparities in COVID risk within cities.
