The need for Latino community in SF:

According to a recent UCSF study: 1o​f nearly 3,000 residents and workers in a Mission District census tract who were tested in late April for active infection with the novel coronavirus, an overwhelming number (95 percent) were Hispanic or Latinx.

The majority of those who tested positive (82 percent) reported having been financially affected by economic fallout of the pandemic and only 10 percent reported being able to work from home.

“Our community needs to stay strong, and in order to persevere it needs to stay healthy​,” ​ said Carnaval San Francisco Co-founder and Artistic Director Roberto Hernandez. “We welcome everyone to take an introspective look at their mental, spiritual and physical health, and seek balance and well-being, particularly in tumultuous times.”
