COVID-19 has changed the lives of all Californians in so many ways. Millions of people of all ages are staying home to save lives and are having to reinvent how to live, work, and connect with our family, friends, and communities. Many are experiencing isolation, interruption in services, and loss of needed income due to the pandemic and resulting recession. Others cannot stay home, because of essential work and services, or do not have a home, and face greater risks of exposure.
As of July 6, there have been 277,774 confirmed COVID-19 cases in California. Tragically, there have been 6,448 COVID-19 deaths in California since the start of the pandemic. Most of those deaths are among people 65 and over. Older people, those with compromised immune systems, and people with certain underlying health conditions like heart disease, lung disease and diabetes, for example, are at greater risk of serious illness and death. Disproportionately high numbers of people who are Black, Indigenous, and people of color are contracting COVID-19 and are dying, due to systemic racism and resulting social determinants of health. Residents of nursing homes, where an infection can lead to outbreaks with enormous consequences, account for more than 4 out of 10 COVID-19 deaths. All of these losses of life are deeply felt by families, communities, and our State.
Please tell us your experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic and share your recommendations for how the Governor's Master Plan for Aging can help build an age-friendly and disability-friendly state for all.
