Social Media Links:

These are AgriSafe’s links – what do yours look like?

  • Tweets tend to be short (no more than 280 characters), concise, need not always include an image or external link, often have 1-3 hashtags, and do best when framed as part of a larger regional/national dialogue.
  • Facebook posts can be longer, include only one general hashtag at most, and tend to go best with graphics that depict a story, such as infographics or pictures of individuals.
  • Instagram posts are centered around an image, do not include external links, and can have many hashtags.

COVID-19 Community Levels

A measure of the impact of COVID-19 illness on health and healthcare systems.

COVID-19 Community Levels can help communities make decisions based on their local context and their unique needs. Community vaccination coverage and other local information, like early alerts from surveillance, such as through wastewater or the number of emergency department visits for COVID-19, when available, can also inform decision-making for health officials and individuals. View the COVID-19 Community Level tool designed by the CDC to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. If you have specific concerns or underlying conditions, please contact your healthcare provider.

Additional guidance for communities is available from the CDC. Find information on free masks in your area, treatment options near you, vaccination, and free COVID test.

The COVID-19 Pandemic has been hard for everyone, especially essential agricultural workers. Over the next several weeks we will be posting information regarding COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy to help keep you and your fellow workers healthy. You may have questions on the myths and claims surrounding the COVID-19 vaccine, the benefits of the COVID-19 vaccine or why YOU specifically should get the COVID-19 vaccine.
