 The Philadelphia Department of Public Health has released an interim plan to address the racial inequities posed by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

  • Access to COVID-19 Testing,
  • Surveillance Data
  • Community Outreach
  • Chronic Health Conditions
  • Protecting Essential Workers 
  • Community Spread
  • Spread in Congregate Settings
  • Case Investigation and Contact Tracing

Each section acknowledges existing disparities in the community, highlights what the City and Health Department are currently doing to address those disparities, and plans for further addressing them. Read the full plan below.
