One of the elements required for meeting the equity metric in the Blueprint for a Safer Economy is for each county to submit a plan demonstrating targeted investments to eliminate disparities in levels of COVID-19 transmission. Each county submitted a Targeted Equity Investment Plan, as required. Plans will be posted on a rolling basis as they are reviewed, approved by CDPH, and converted to an ADA compliant format. These plans are produced as part of an iterative process and counties will work in partnership with technical assistance support to continuously develop and improve their plans and strengthen implementation of equity-focused activities for their community.
The COVID-19 Health Equity Playbook for Communities is intended to support local communities in achieving their Health Equity Measure as part of the California's Blueprint for a Safer Economy and building an equitable recovery. Counties can use this document to inform Targeted Equity Investment Plans. This living document will continue to be updated as the pandemic progresses and as more is learned about what strategies are working on the ground.
