    How to Conduct a Rapid Community Assessment

    Rapid community assessment (RCA) is a process for quickly collecting community insights about a public health issue in order to inform program design. The assessment involves reviewing existing data and conducting community-based interviews, listening sessions, observations, social listening, and surveys.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is pleased to share an assessment guide and tools for those who wish to better understand their community’s needs regarding COVID-19 vaccine acceptance and uptake among adults, adolescents, and children.

          Delta variant and why the vaccine is important

          This is a page on the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) listing information about the Delta variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It explains that the variant is more contagious and causes more severe illness; therefore, unvaccinated people remain at the highest risk. People who are fully vaccinated could still get infected with the Delta variant but have a very low chance of developing severe illness and could spread it for a shorter period of time.

            The CDC Says Tight-Fit Masks or Double Masking Increases Protection

            New research by the agency shows that transmission of the virus can be reduced by up to 96.5 percent if both an infected individual and an uninfected individual wear tightly fitted surgical masks or a cloth-and-surgical-mask combination.

            One option for reducing transmission is to wear a cloth mask over a surgical mask, the agency said. The alternative is to fit the surgical mask more tightly on the face by “knotting and tucking” — that is, knotting the two strands of the ear loops together where they attach to the edge of the mask, then folding and flattening the extra fabric at the mask’s edge and tucking it in for a tighter seal.

            Other effective options that improve the fit include using a mask-fitter — a frame contoured to the face — over a mask, or wearing a sleeve of sheer nylon hosiery material around the neck and pulled up over a cloth or surgical mask, the C.D.C. said.
