Cottage Population Health is partnering with community-based organizations and agencies to provide medically accurate and culturally acceptable COVID-19 prevention, training, resources, and tools to the communities most impacted by COVID-19 in Santa Barbara County.
Current Population Health responses are addressing COVID-19 needs across current initiatives as well as new activities to support vulnerable communities, including the following:
- Partnering with trusted local leaders and community health workers to support liaisons to vulnerable communities and provide prevention information, education, and referral resources.
- Equipping patients with positive COVID-19 tests and/or suspected cases of COVID-19 with a thermometer, pulse oximeter, and educational materials on self-monitoring and self-isolation practices. Patients also receive a follow-up call from a nurse to answer any questions.
- Supporting the development of culturally appropriate prevention materials and awareness campaigns.
