North Carolina continues to see a sustained increase in confirmed COVID-19 cases among the general population.  Among historically marginalized populations, there is a disproportionately high percentage of cases statewide.  In particular, African American residents are 21% of the North Carolina population, but represent 24% of the cases and 32% of the deaths where race and ethnicity are known.  Health disparities among African Americans in North Carolina are historic and persistent.

In order to address this concern in the community, River City CDC is sponsoring three online meetings, open to the public via Zoom, to disseminate information to the community on the best and safest practices for dealing with COVID-19.  A panel of community leaders and experts will provide advice and guidance on Center for Disease Control and NC Department of Health and Human Services guidelines and recommendations.
