Shortly after the Covid-19 Pandemic, in August 2020, Torres, along with Jay Tamsi and HA Sala joined forces to create the Kern County Latino Covid-19 Task Force initially, to bring awareness of the coronavirus to the Latino community. As the task force evolved, its mission rapidly expanded to include all citizens of Kern County because of the need to educate and protect the citizens of this county. Since its creation, Torres has appeared in numerous television commercials and interviews in both English and Spanish mediums, informing the public about the need to remain Covid free and the importance of washing hands frequently, maintaining social distancing and avoiding large gatherings. Torres continues to volunteer his time at testing sites and numerous mass vaccination sites sponsored by the task force. Torres was extremely instrumental in organizing the vaccination of 3,000 plus Farmworkers in Kern County (March 2021) as well as the visit by Dr. Jill Biden and Governor Gavin Newsom to the historical UFW 40 Acres in Delano.
