June 15, 2022 –
The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) and the Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organization (AAPCHO) will be convening a virtual listening session on June 15, 2022, on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) COVID-19 mask guidance around community use of masks. This listening session provides an opportunity for American Indian (AI), Alaska Native (AN), Asian American (AA), and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander (NH/PI) communities to ask questions about the CDC’s COVID-19 mask guidance.
By the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:
- Identify which masks offer the best protection in stopping the spread of COVID-19
- Understand when and why it is important to wear face masks or face-covering in public places and around people who do not live in the same household
- Describe how to prepare for future variants
Who should attend?
Native families, nurses, school administrators, emergency responders, health educators, and other Tribal public health professionals interested in preventing the spread of COVID-19.
