In May 2020, the SHOW program launched its COVID-19 Community Impact Survey.

As a public health data infrastructure, we understand how an infectious disease outbreak can impact nearly all aspects of life.

The SHOW program pivoted our resources to create a population health survey to collect information on how the pandemic affects health as a whole.

For preliminary findings and detailed survey methods, see our pre-print publication.
