Key Updates from the Health Center COVID-19 Survey (Week #10): Two-Thirds of Health Center Patients with Laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 are Racial/Ethnic Minorities

As more than half of all states reported an increase in their seven-day COVID-19 case averages, the latest Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA’s) weekly COVID-19 survey summary continues to show that the rate of positive health center COVID-19 tests (14.8 percent) is more than twice as high as the national rate. The data also show that high numbers of health center sites remain closed (1,762), resulting in reduced access to health center services even as states reopen and patients resume seeking care.
