COVID-19: Mapping vulnerable populations in California

Publication
March 24, 2020

As part of the effort to respond to the needs of the most vulnerable and impacted groups during the ongoing and rapidly developing coronavirus pandemic we've developed a series of maps that identify regions throughout California that may be in most need of resources and support. The maps serve as tools to assist aid organizations and nonprofits working on the ground to reach particular groups, government agencies working on plans to allocate resources, health organizations, and the media. Visit each set of maps by clicking on the thumbnail images below.
