Final Report of the Community Health Worker COVID-19 Impact Survey: Oklahoma Results

This report shares the findings of the survey distributed in Oklahoma in January 2021. It provides insights into how the COVID-19 pandemic impacted CHWs in Oklahoma both professionally and personally, shares CHW observations about community concerns, and identifies CHW training needs for future public health emergency responses. This study is a replication of the 2020 CHW COVID-19 Impact Survey distributed in Texas during the summer of 2020.
