State wants to know how Washingtonians are coping with COVID-19


The Washington Department of Health wants to know how well you’re coping with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The department has launched what it’s calling the Community Recovery-Oriented Needs, or CORONA survey.

Participants are directed to fill out a voluntary confidential survey.

DOH says the results “will inform immediate, long-term, and ongoing actions that DOH and local health jurisdictions can take to address the impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak on Washingtonians.”

As an incentive for people from all across the state to participate, three people each week will be selected to receive a $100 Amazon gift code.

Among other things, the survey asks which county you live in, how many people are in your household and how many of them are over age 60 or have underlying health conditions.

In addition, participants are asked if anyone in the household has been diagnosed with COVID-19.

They then are asked to rate their family’s stress level over the virus and if they have been hurt financially.

One question asks if the respondent has been treated unfairly because of their race or ethnicity.

There are also questions about your ability to see or pay for a visit to a doctor.
