As Both Vaccinated And Unvaccinated People Shed Their Masks, How Are Black Essential Workers Impacted?

As the world slowly reopens at what appears to be the tail-end of the COVID-19 pandemic, you may have noticed that the waters have gotten a bit murky in regard to mask-wearing. While some public spaces still require all people to wear masks, others have relaxed the rules, making exceptions for those who are vaccinated. While these new relaxed guidelines sound great in theory, they’re difficult to manage when proof of vaccination is not required. And with new, potentially more deadly variants of the COVID-19 virus on the scene, Black essential workers are more vulnerable than ever.

To address this pressing issue, the Black Coalition Against COVID will be hosting the next installment of their “Making It Plain” virtual town hall meeting. The talk, which will feature Senior Advisor of the White House COVID-19 Response Team Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith, Senior Policy Advisor for COVID-19 Equity Dr. Cameron Webb, labor union experts, and more, is scheduled to take place today, Tuesday, June 29 from 7:00 pm to 8:45 pm ET.

During the discussion, attendees will have their questions answered about vaccinations, COVID policies, and how “COVID-19 is impacting unvaccinated essential workers.”

The virtual event will be streamed at www.facebook.com/blackdoctor.org and www.youtube.com/blackdoctororg.
