The AHANA COVID-19 prevention team is currently under a Department of Health (DOH) contract to educate the community about the spread of the virus, with the goal of the safe reopening of businesses. The team has developed a training presentation for multi-ethnic and multi-cultural businesses in Spokane based on information from the DOH. The presentation materials are provided in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Korean, and Chinese. During the training presentations, translators are used for a clearer understanding for those businesses with language barriers. The team is over a month into executing the contract, with the goal to reach 112 businesses by the end of March.
The contract has allowed AHANA to further connect with multi-ethnic businesses about its mission to advocate for them. AHANA will continue to work with multi-ethnic businesses to ease the transitions to new phases of COVID-19 reopening protocols. During the new phases, it is essential for businesses to remain vigilant with health protocols while the pandemic continues.
