COVID-19 community response

Our COVID-19 community response is focusing on the dissemination of information, food, and resources to the hardest-hit Pacific Islander communities through collaboration between private businesses, local counties, state, and national NGOs like The Pacific Islander Coalition (in Multnomah County), Washington County, and EPIC (Empowering Pacific Islander Communities).

Providing information about testing sites and social distancing to local Pacific Islander community members

Providing translation services at COVID-19 testing sites

Bring concerns from the communities back to local and state agencies

Coordinate the Covid-19 response with other Pacific Islander organizations through projects such as the Pacific Islander Coalition's Covid-19 Response Team

CDC Recommendations

Infection prevention is key to fighting this disease, and there are many things you can do to protect yourself and the people you interact with.

  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Dry them thoroughly with an air dryer or clean towel. If soap isn’t available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Stay home if you’re sick.
  • Avoid touching nose, eyes, and mouth. Use a tissue to cover a cough or sneeze, then dispose of it in the trash.
  • Use a household wipe or spray to disinfect doorknobs, light switches, desks, keyboards, sinks, toilets, cell phones, and other objects and surfaces that are frequently touched.
  • Create a household plan of action in case someone in your house gets sick with COVID-19.
  • Wear a cloth face mask in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, especially in areas where there is significant community-based transmission. A cloth mask is not meant to protect the wearer from infection, but to slow the spread of the virus (if people who have the virus and do not know it wear masks, they may be less likely to transmit it to others).
