The callous indifference for Pinal County’s most at-risk communities for contacting COVID-19 was exhibited by a recent 3-2 vote by the board of supervisors against accepting a federal $3.4 million grant to help mitigate the spread of the disease and its lethal variants. By refusing to vote for the grant money, the board of supervisors effectively told our rural under-served communities — Native-American, African-American, the disabled, Hispanic, LBGTQ and other neighbors — that their access to health care and information simply is not a priority.

Obtaining the grant funds is supported by the Pinal County Health and Services director, Dr. Tascha Spears, and would address the health care needs that our under-served communities face now; and provide vital resources necessary to address them in the future.
