Regístrese aquí: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZMrdOCgqjgpG9aBaOXZJFadKJ_LM92WW3eX

Hay mucha información alrededor del mundo sobre el COVID-19, ¿pero ¿qué pasa en nuestra área específica? Esta conversación comunitaria por Zoom tendrá la información más corriente acerca del virus en el Condado de Santa Cruz y cómo mantenernos seguros mientras muchos lugares abren de nuevo y los casos de COVID suben.

El Departamento de Salud Público del Condado de Santa Cruz nos informará sobre cómo nos está afectando la pandemia y Salud Para La Gente nos informará de cómo podemos disfrutar de la vida social mientras mantenernos seguros del COVID; dónde probar si tenemos el virus o no; y dónde conseguir atención medica cuando uno tiene síntomas del COVID.

Habrá tiempo para preguntas y tiempo para discutir como podemos seguir los consejos de seguridad aun cuando nuestras circunstancias personales no fácilmente permiten eso.

*Available in English or Spanish*

*Participantes podrán escuchar en español o ingles por medio de interpretación en vivo.* Para utilizar la interpretación en vivo, regístrese y entre la llamada de Zoom como lo haría normalmente (es preferible en computadora). Para empezar la interpretación por Zoom, revise las instrucciones en esta página: https://www.iitc.org/zoom-instructions-for-attendees/
