Nelson and her team are building an integrated geospatial data ecosystem for examining geographic clustering and unequal burden of COVID-19 by income, race/ethnicity, and household crowding, and other social determinants of health. They will begin with Santa Clara and Solano Counties, but the system is scalable to all 58 CA counties. This work will enable public health agencies to identify individual and contextual risk factors for SARS-CoV-2 infection, and predict and prevent future outbreaks.
