The 4 Rs of COVID-19 Recovery
Rolling Response and Recovery Guide
In summer 2020, we laid out four major categories to guide response efforts to protect the health of those disproportionately affected by COVID-19: requiring basic health protections for workers; rebuilding financial stability for families, small businesses, and social enterprises; reconnecting communities and protecting mental health; and revolutionizing the status quo to protect people of color. Here, we describe the four categories, including key implementation actions and desired outcomes. This foundational tool incorporates expertise from over 1,000 government leaders, public health professionals, and community members.
