AB-1388 COVID-19: death data.(2021-2022)

As Amends the Law Today

 The Legislatures finds and declares both of the following:
(a) COVID-19 has already killed more than 50,000 people in California, and state residents deserve to have greater transparency on the deadly toll of the pandemic.
(b) Preliminary data on COVID-19 deaths show that a disproportionate loss of life has occurred in low-income communities and communities of color, and there is a need to inspire greater equity in distribution of vaccines to the hardest hit communities.

SEC. 2.

 Section 120131 is added to the Health and Safety Code, to read:

 (a) The department shall report COVID-19 death data by ZIP Code on its COVID-19 dashboard.
(b) The department shall create a uniform dashboard for county health departments to use for the purposes of reporting COVID-19 death data on their public internet websites.
