OHA recognizes that communities of color and disabled communities are disproportionally impacted by COVID-19, and without collection and reporting of REALD data for COVID-19 encounters these inequities cannot be adequately tracked and measured. The state’s response to mitigating the spread and health impacts of COVID-19 for the purpose of service provision, including but not limited to: testing, education, outreach, wrap services and vaccine distribution will continue to be impaired if it does not have reliable REALD data.

They are reviewing potential changes to the way data is collected - no details yet but my fingers are crossed that they'll come up with a way that doesn't require so much staff interaction at the clinic while trying to see patients.
