Rural social workers share advice on how to prepare for another wave of COVID-19

The National Rural Health Association published a piece in Rural Health Voices featuring the unique perspectives of rural child social workers during the pandemic. Rural social workers offer insight on the challenges they have faced in the pandemic, including technology access issues and the deep personal impact of seeing clients affected. Some suggestions to support rural social workers as the pandemic continues include having sufficient PPE, creating a comprehensive plan, tying state systems like education and health care together, having adequate technology available, focusing on self-care, and collaborating with local attorneys to ensure rural families can access available resources. #covid-19 #rural
