CARING FOR AGRICULTURAL
WORKERS DURING THE COVID-19
PANDEMIC

BACKGROUND
• How the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted farms and migrant
and seasonal agricultural workers (MSAWs)
• About the CT River Valley Farmworker Health Program (CRVFHP)
• Unique challenges in providing primary care and COVID-19
outreach to this patient population
• Role of the community health worker (CHW)
CRVFHP
IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON FARMS AND MSAWs
• There have been more than 250,000 covid cases among farmworkers in US, but this
number may significantly underestimate cases among migrant and seasonal agricultural
workers (MSAWs). [1]
• Large-scale covid outbreaks have occurred at farms across the country. The largest to
date was at Foster Farms, a poultry farm in CA, where 392 workers tested positive and 8
died. [2]
• H2-A visa holders are required to get tested and quarantine for 14 days upon arrival to
US. However, a large percentage of MSAWs (up to 49% of horticulture workers, for
example) are here without visas so may not have quarantined upon arrival.
• As of September, only eight states had issued mandatory regulations for protecting
agricultural workers from exposure to COVID-19. Twenty states currently have non-
enforceable recommendations.
• Covid has had a massive impact on our agriculture industry – US farmers and ranchers
are estimated to lose approx. $20 billion in revenue in 2020.

in MA and CT

specialty care through MOUs with local hospitals and clinics

year-round

UNIQUE CHALLENGES IN PROVIDING CARE TO
MSAWS• Primary medical care

- Reluctance to report symptoms of illness for fear of missing out on work
- Language and cultural differences
- Limitations on what is covered under voucher program
- Lack of transportation and reliable phone access
- Need to establish trust and rapport in a short time
• Covid-specific medical care and counseling
- Communal living spaces
- Working in close proximity
- Limited access to sinks and bathrooms when working in field
- Difficulty wearing a mask when doing farm or greenhouse work
- MSAWs may fear getting tested, feel pressured by employer not to get
tested, or have limited access to testing in spare time
- Tech access or tech literacy barriers
- Rural health systems less equipped to handle large outbreaks
- Coordinating with local consulate officials from different countries where
rules around
testing, quarantine and travel vary

  • 11. CARING FOR AGRICULTURAL WORKERS DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC Jeannie McIntosh, MSN, APRN, FNP-C CHC Center for Key Populations 2 December 2020
  • 12. BACKGROUND • How the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted farms and migrant and seasonal agricultural workers (MSAWs) • About the CT River Valley Farmworker Health Program (CRVFHP) • Unique challenges in providing primary care and COVID-19 outreach to this patient population • Role of the community health worker (CHW) CRVFHP
  • 13. IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON FARMS AND MSAWs • There have been more than 250,000 covid cases among farmworkers in US, but this number may significantly underestimate cases among migrant and seasonal agricultural workers (MSAWs). [1] • Large-scale covid outbreaks have occurred at farms across the country. The largest to date was at Foster Farms, a poultry farm in CA, where 392 workers tested positive and 8 died. [2] • H2-A visa holders are required to get tested and quarantine for 14 days upon arrival to US. However, a large percentage of MSAWs (up to 49% of horticulture workers, for example) are here without visas so may not have quarantined upon arrival. • As of September, only eight states had issued mandatory regulations for protecting agricultural workers from exposure to COVID-19. Twenty states currently have non- enforceable recommendations. • Covid has had a massive impact on our agriculture industry – US farmers and ranchers are estimated to lose approx. $20 billion in revenue in 2020.
  • 14. Covid outbreaks on farms Cumulative covid cases on farms FOOD AND ENVIRONMENT REPORTING NETWORK (FERN) https://thefern.org/2020/04/mapping-covid-19-in-meat-and-food-processing-plants/

  • 17.

COVID-19 PREVENTION EFFORTS Joelle Isidor, CRVFHP Outreach Worker • DELIVERY OF SUPPLIES - Masks - Hand sanitizer - Protective eyewear - Food and other goods for workers in quarantine or isolation • PREVENTATIVE EDUCATION - Hand hygiene - Physical distancing - Health risks associated with covid • FLU VACCINE CLINICS – to reduce risk of influenza co-infection

  • 21. AGENCY RESPONSE TO OUTBREAKS Kasey Harding, MPH Director of the Center for Key Populations • MASS TESTING AT FARMS - Rapid response at onset of outbreak - Leveraging mobile testing supply units, workflow and team members already experienced in large- scale testing events sponsored by state - Returning to retest those who initially tested negative - Results conveyed via texts, phone calls, outreach worker visiting farms • COUNSELING AND EDUCATION - Consulting with local DPH, CRVFHP staff, and CHC clinical leadership to come up with plan - Advising farm owners on how to quarantine and isolate workers in close communal living situations, ex. moving those who test negative to separate barracks or nearby off-site location - Nurse triage and tele health provider visits utilized for counseling symptomatic patients on supportive care measures and ED precautions - Return-to-work guidance - Measures to prevent repeat outbreaks (or additional spread of existing outbreak) LESSONS LEARNED FROM MULNITE FARM OUTBREAK: - Coordinating with DPH - Handling media attention
