Background

Right now, even people who have not become sick with COVID-19 are managing stress, uncertainty, and isolation during this challenging time. People of color and other communities who have been historically underserved are being hurt the most. 

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) is committed to better serving these communities by learning about their experiences directly through this COVID-19 Community Impact Survey (now closed), and using answers to create new solutions.

This survey was intended for anyone 14 and older who lives in Massachusetts. MA-DPH specifically sought to hear from communities who have suffered the most through this public health emergency. 

The survey was offered online by computer, phone or tablet, in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Haitian Creole, and Vietnamese.
