Wine Country's Farmworkers Are Staying Healthy Against All Odds

¡Salud! mobile clinics were a vital factor in keeping farm workers in Oregon vineyards safe during the national health crisis. The nonprofit is supported by the state's wine industry and has provided primary care wellness checks, vaccinations, and more for decades to workers, the majority of whom do not have any other access to health care. ¡Salud! provided testing and masks early on in addition to information about the importance of masks and social distancing. Translated CDC updates were also sent to the mostly spanish-speaking workers about the constantly-changing guidelines and precautions.
