Description of Event
Umatilla Electric is partnering with the University of Oregon to host a free drive-thru COVID-19 testing site at our Hermiston office.
A grant from the National Institutes of Health will expand COVID-19 testing to underserved Latinx communities in counties throughout Oregon using testing capacity created by the University of Oregon’s COVID-19 Monitoring and Assessment Program (MAP). The project addresses the significant disparities in COVID- 19 cases among Latinx communities in Oregon by collaborating with county and community partners to scale up 36 testing sites across multiple counties in Oregon, and incorporating culturally and community tailored testing opportunities.
