The COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult for everyone. But for some groups, including and especially the disability community, its impact has been staggering. The Arc of Pennsylvania received funding through the Pennsylvania Department of Health to investigate, educate, and report on problems that people with disabilities in Pennsylvania have accessing appropriate information and help during the COVID-19 pandemic. With a deepened understanding of the unique health barriers that the disability community faces, The Arc of Pennsylvania has compiled a list of 10 recommended solutions to combat these very barriers and advance health equity for people with disabilities.
