Abstract

To help slow the spread of COVID-19 and save lives, UCLA Center for Neighborhood Knowledge and UCLA BRITE Center for Science, Research, and Policy developed vulnerability indicators aimed at identifying which neighborhoods in California are at most risk of becoming impacted by COVID-19 infections. The map includes four important indicators known to significantly increase a person’s medical vulnerability to COVID-19 infection: 1) pre-existing health conditions, 2) barriers to accessing services, 3) built-environment risk and 4) social vulnerability.
