COVID-19 EH Response Online Community
An interactive social storehouse to help public health professionals to engage in discussions, connect with peers, and share resources and templates on COVID-19 communication, training, and inspections.
The COVID-19 EH Response Forum is a supplementary resource to NEHA’s COVID Resource Website. NEHA recognizes the need for a credible resource repository that would help environmental health professionals (EHPs) to gain access to best practices on COVID-19 response, recovery, and resilience-building and as they relate to environmental health. In addition to a resource repository, NEHA has created the COVID-19 EH Response Forum to allow users to engage on the virtual platform by engaging in discussions, connecting with peers, and promoting relevant events.

– Let us not grow weary of the struggle or surrender to the pressure –
Together we stand, press on, and lead the charge of supporting and promoting the health of the nation.
The road continues to be arduous, and the potholes are abundant.
Every employee of our association continues with our commitment to bring the full measure of our capabilities and resources to your support.
This is the moment for which we were trained.
Let us continue to bring a contemporary interpretation to the art of practice. Let our face be one of kindness and empathy. Let our science continue to drive our community’s recovery and resiliency. Let this be the moment we can one day look back on with the knowledge that we worked with all our capacity to safely shepherd the frightened public through the uncertainty and difficult hazards faced.
The time in history that puts us—environmental health professionals—at the intersection of COVID-19 is just ahead.
We will mediate society’s return to normalcy.
Over the next few weeks, environmental health professionals, like Atlas of Greek mythology, will be asked to hoist many burdens upon their shoulders.
Let our science drive our community’s recovery and resiliency. Let this be the moment where we safely shepherd the frightened public into the future.
Let’s create a profoundly memorable moment, one that undeniably demonstrates the value of our profession to the health and prosperity of the communities we serve.
