Survey Measuring Effects Of COVID-19 On Communities Of Color

Aug 31, 2020

The city of Albany wants to better understand how residents are experiencing the coronavirus pandemic, especially those from communities of color.

Residents are invited to take a 5-minute online COVID-19 Community Survey. Chief City Auditor Dorcey Applyrs:

"In preparation for what some anticipate as in a second wave of COVID-19, my office is collecting this information so that we can provide recommendations in the form of a report to Mayor Kathy Sheehan."

Applyrs says the survey closes at 5 p.m. on Tuesday. It's anonymous and is available in English, Spanish and Chinese.

"We want to ensure that we are addressing disparities in health outcomes that we've seen with COVID-19 cases and deaths among residents of color."
