The COVID-19 Response and NCLHD Accreditation HDSAI Guide highlights potential evidence opportunities related to the COVID-19 response. The guide also includes examples of how local health department are planning to use their COVID-19 response as evidence. Here are two examples of how local health departments plan to use their response to COVID-19 as evidence for Accreditation activities:
Activity 14.1 Informing Officials of Public Health Needs: Transylvania County presented updates to the Board of Commissioners about COVID-19 mitigation and about vaccination efforts.
Activity 20.2 Collaboration on Barriers to Care: Mecklenburg County partnered with the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African American Arts & Culture and StarMed to offer COVID-19 testing and vaccines in low-income communities and communities of color.
If you have an example from your agency’s response to COVID-19 that you would like to share, please email us: NCLHDaccreditation@unc.edu. We look forward to hearing from you!
