COVID-19 Examples of Contractor Materials - Minnesota Dept. of Health

COVID-19 Examples of Contractor Materials and Messages

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is partnering with many experienced and trusted diverse media vendors and community organizations in Minnesota as part of our public health response to COVID-19. Our relationships with diverse media vendors and community organizations play a key part in ensuring that all who reside in Minnesota and the 11 Tribal Nations that share its geography – including residents from communities of color, American Indian residents, LGBTQ residents, residents with disabilities, and residents with limited English proficiency – have access to needed, culturally relevant resources and have the opportunity to be fully informed with culturally relevant, linguistically appropriate, accurate, and timely messages related to COVID-19.

This page contains a sampling of materials produced by our contractors since our COVID-19 contracts began in March 2020. Please note that COVID information changes rapidly. Some information contained in these materials and videos may no longer be current.

For more information, please contact us at health.covidoutreach@state.mn.us.
