The Latinx community continues to have more positive cases of COVID-19 compared to the rest of the city. CDPH is committed to continuing to focus resources to support this community. All guidance documents are listed below in Spanish. Additionally, the entire CDPH website can be translated into Spanish – simply click on “Select a language” at the top right corner of the page.
