The MA Department of Public Health (MDPH) has recently released the COVID-19 Community Impact Survey (CCIS) located here: www.mass.gov/COVIDsurvey. MDPH is particularly interested in gathering responses from communities who have been impacted the most, including: people of color, immigrants, individuals who are LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, essential workers, people experiencing housing instability, older adults, and those in geographic areas hardest hit by COVID-19.
This online survey is aimed at collecting data to better understand and identify the social, economic, and health needs and inequities resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Findings from this survey will be used to improve MDPH’s ability to act by helping address the most critical needs, partnering with communities to support local efforts, and informing state policy with accurate information on what people need now and in the long term. More information is attached.
