As rates of COVID-19 infection and deaths in the US have surged, communities have had to respond with restrictions on social interactions and face to face contact. This has resulted in renewed concerns about the impact of social isolation on both the mental and physical health of our communities, especially our most vulnerable populations. This workshop will identify the risk factors of social isolation as well as help participants think creatively about how they can support physical distancing while maintaining social contact and support. Racism and distrust as a result of the origin of the COVID-19 virus are also factors in its impact on social isolation. These contributing concerns will be addressed in this webinar.
