Research from RTC:Rural is featured in the latest research findings from ACL on the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on People with Disabilities.

Seven RTC:Rural researchers are represented through research related to the impact of COVID-19 on rural communities and employment/return-to-work accommodations. Their research includes analyses of vaccine hesitancy and trust of information, ongoing risk in congregate care settings, and the potential impact of the COVID-19 recession on rural people with disabilities. The overall research findings show that people with disabilities were disproportionately affected by the hardships of COVID-19. More research is needed to improve public health outcomes for people with disabilities.
