Mitigation and Prevention

This article lists key findings and considerations for jurisdictions and communities regarding ongoing COVID-19 pandemic operations across the country as they relate to persons with disabilities. For example, individuals may need additional support to shop online for food or connect with organizations for food access. In addition, access to COVID-19 information may be difficult to access if websites are not 508 compliant, and a lack of internet access can compound challenges. Finally, some case studies are included for how communities responded to these challenges.
