Sanitation workers and covid-19 (blog: The unsung heroes of the COVID-19 pandemic)

I wanted to share my recent blog on sanitation workers and COVID-19.

I have tried to link to the most relevant resources (guidelines, posters, videos, briefs) on the topic that have been produced so far.

"The COVID-19 pandemic is a time of heightened danger for sanitation and waste workers. It is also a time of heightened awareness, both of our dependence on these key workers for our health, and of the risks they face every day. It is a rare opportunity to put their situation in the spotlight, and work to further build the recognition and support they deserve."
