RESOURCES & INFORMATION


En Español

As public health emergencies intensify around the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Utah Division of Multicultural Affairs is working closely with other state and local agencies to elevate the unique concerns and impacts that the outbreak has on underserved, underrepresented, and systemically marginalized populations. 



OUr COMMITMENT TO EQUITY DURING COVID-19

We want to ensure that all of our communities understand the current recommended precautions to keep Utahns safe and mitigate the risk of exposure.

The Utah Division of Multicultural Affairs urges Utahns to consider and work towards the following:

  • Be flexible, inclusive, and culturally appropriate in your actions and communication.
  • Actively dispel xenophobic misinformation that COVID-19 is linked to individuals of a specific ethnicity, race, or national origin.
  • Respond to this crisis with unity and compassion.
  • Remember we are all only as safe as those members of our community who are most underserved.

We will continue to work with state and local partners to encourage that practices and policies to address COVID-19 are culturally inclusive and mindful of our marginalized communities. Please also see the resources below that may be helpful in navigating this situation. 


What Multicultural Communities Need
to Know About the COVID-19 Vaccine


The COVID-19 vaccination is an important tool to help stop the pandemic. A vaccine fact sheet in Spanish & English has been created in partnership with the Multicultural Advisory Committee, the Utah Department of Health, and the State of Utah's COVID-19 Response. Cost, immigration status, or lack of insurance are not obstacles to getting vaccinated against COVID-19.
