North Sound ACH has a new data tool that identifies areas where individuals may be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19, and who may be more impacted by physical distancing orders. This data dashboard was created by our colleagues at King County Public Health to share information that organizations can use to ensure health equity remains top of mind, focusing resources toward communities that may be more vulnerable due to health, social, or economic conditions.
The dashboard includes the North Sound counties and tribal nations in the region. Data is included on groups at higher risk for severe illness due to age, health conditions, and pregnancy; and data about socioeconomic conditions, including income, healthcare access, and behavioral health. The tool can be accessed here.
Learn more about how to use this tool in the video below.
