COVID-19 Race, Ethnicity, Language and Disability (REALD) Report

The Oregon Health Authority published a report on COVID-19 race, ethnicity, language and disability (REALD) data that highlights the inequitable impact of the disease on specific racial and ethnic groups, and challenges faced by those with language, disability and health access barriers. In 2020, the Oregon Legislature passed a law (House Bill 4212) that requires health care providers to collect REALD information at health care visits related to COVID-19, and to share this information with Oregon Health Authority (OHA).
