Latino COVID-19 Taskforce Press Conference (10/2/20)

“Access to testing is one of our top priorities. We need to ensure that the Latino population is being tested, self-isolating at home when needed to stop the spread of COVID-19. This is a very serious matter for Kern County’s economic state and the physical and mental health of our Latino Community.” – Jay Tamsi, Co-Founder
