Covid Is A Long Term Reality – Answer the Census Now To Help Us Keep Fighting It

Even after a vaccine joins the fight against Covid 19, the long term health effects and costs will remain in your community. It will take long term health resources, such as Medicare, Medicaid and community health centers to continue our response. And the way to secure those resources is to answer the Census NOW.
