Support Local Meal Programs
Free and discounted school meals and community meal programs are nutritional safety nets for many children and adults. The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted normal operations for these vital programs. Schools are responding by providing to go meals for pickup, delivering meals along school bus routes, and providing centralized meal pickup locations off school grounds. Community meal programs are responding by switching to take away only meals, modifying hours, limiting facility access, and enforcing social distancing during pickups.
As schools and meal programs deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, members of the community that rely on these essential services need to know where, when, and how to obtain meals.
The Coronavirus Response solution now includes a series of apps to inventory meal pickup locations, report on pickup site operations, make the public aware of pickup locations near them, and monitor the program with a dashboard.
Coronavirus Case Dashboards
Visualizing case data in a dashboard is powerful tool that helps local health officials make decisions when responding to COVID-19. Coronavirus Response now includes a new case dashboard that provides rich ways to visualize key case metrics. In addition, there is a companion dashboard optimized for mobile devices.
