Webinar Description

As people return to normal activities following the reopening of many states’ economies and inconsistently use preventive measures, like masks and social distancing, cases of COVID-19 have increased in 23 states since mid-June. During this conversation-style webinar, participants will discuss how their organizations are responding to the current and evolving situation, particularly given recent factors including “lockdown fatigue” and limited new resources devoted to impacted regions.

Facilitated by the hosts of the podcast, More than Health Care: A Community Health Conversation, this session will offer insight into how community-based organizations are addressing the latest effects of COVID-19 on their communities. Connect with peers on concerns, challenges, and potential solutions including those that involve partners in health care, public health, government, and more. Specific questions facilitators look to address include:

  • How have organizations partnered with local and state health departments?
  • What internal policies and practices for staff health and safety have been implemented?
  • How are the mental health and well-being needs of staff and community members being addressed?
  • How can successes and failures from the past few months help inform our response to the continuing summertime challenges? 


  • Challenges and opportunities facing community-based organizations given the current spread of COVID-19
  • Organizational and community implications of pandemic response including health and safety protocols and staff and community needs assessment
  • Alliance resources and supports to help organizations with COVID-19-related scenario planning, fund development and communications, partnership best practices, and more
