In early 2021, ASTHO, with support from CDC’s National Center for Environmental Health and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, provided funding and assistance to five state health agencies (or their partners) to support environmental health-related COVID-19 response activities. Examples of activities performed under these awards include performing COVID-19 consultations during standard on-site restaurant inspections and informing schools and early care and education programs about effective, safe COVID-19 mitigation protocols.
This webinar will feature presentations from project staff at the Arkansas Department of Health, Kentucky Department for Public Health, and Vermont Department of Health’s partner, Informed Green Solutions. Each representative will provide an overview of their state’s project under these awards, as well as challenges, successes, and lessons learned from undertaking this work. An audience Q&A will follow the presentations.
Note: This is part one of a two-part webinar series. Stay tuned for more details regarding presentations from state health agencies in Indiana and Virginia.
