The full burden of SARS-CoV-2 infection has been difficult to determine due to testing focused on symptomatic people and challenges in access to testing in the most heavily affected communities. In this presentation, Drs. Chamie and Marquez will present findings from the Unidos en Salud study that characterized community SARS-CoV-2 transmission in a densely populated, majority Latinx US census tract in the Mission District during San Francisco's shelter-in-place mandate. 

Presentations followed by moderated Q&A
