Also included are community, county, and state resources. Some of these programs and services are available to everyone regardless of where they live, although other restrictions may apply.
Discrimination and Stigma
Discrimination based on race or ethnicity only makes it harder to keep everyone healthy. While COVID-19 may have started in China, having Chinese or Asian ancestry – or any other ancestry – does not make a person more vulnerable to or a cause of this illness. COVID-19 doesn't recognize race, ethnicity, or nationality. Seattle & King County Public Health has put together a website of anti-stigma resources that may be helpful.
