As Latinx Population Faces more COVID Hurdles, Groups Say There Is Aid Available

August 12, 2020

According to the latest COVID-19 case data by race/ethnicity released by the County of Sonoma, the Latinx/Hispanic population currently accounts for 51% of the coronavirus cases in the county, whereas, only 17% of the county’s cases are among the white demographic. While the disproportionate case numbers (Latinx/Hispanic people make up 25.6% of the county’s population) look grim, local nonprofits and outreach organizations such as Corazón Healdsburg and California Rural Legal Assistance Inc., are reminding folks that help is available for food, rental, housing and legal assistance.
