Description

The current era of social distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic presents unique constraints related to community engagement. It reveals a need to shift practices to effectively engage the community while keeping residents, community members, and practitioners safe. This toolkit offers strategies to engage communities in the HAP despite limitations introduced by Covid-19, with an eye toward advancing best practices into the future. The toolkit outlines how to 1) define your community for the HAP; 2) identify technological and communications needs; 3) determine health priorities and solutions; and 4) share results. This toolkit is designed for the constraints related to Covid-19, but are adaptable to other circumstances that limit the opportunity for in-person meetings, such as a lack of community space to gather, adverse weather events, or other extenuating circumstances.
