Authors from CDC and HRSA used data from the weekly health center COVID-19 survey in two articles recently published in CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR):
- Telehealth Practice among Health Centers during the COVID-19 Pandemic: Describes health center telehealth service use over a one-week time period in July. Almost all health centers that reported to the survey delivered at least some visits by telehealth. Findings underscore the importance of telehealth as a promising modality for expanding access and care delivery, while opportunities remain for further adoption.
- Health Center Testing for SARS-CoV-2 during the COVID-19 Pandemic: Reviews SARS-CoV-2 testing figures and positive test results (PCR or antigen) by race, ethnicity, and state of residence. Study results highlight health centers as important access points for SARS-CoV-2 testing and suggest that health center efforts can reduce transmission of COVID-19 among racial and ethnic minority populations.
