NAMPA, Idaho — Nampa is reaching out to its Hispanic community to slow the spread of COVID-19. The city is joining with the Hispanic Latino COVID-19 Task Force to host an event Thursday night covering all aspects of coronavirus.
The event, held in Spanish, is designed to cut down on the rising number of cases within the Hispanic community.
"We're worried about the increase in percentage in our Hispanic community," said Enrique Rivera, President of the Idaho Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. "Especially in Canyon County where twenty-five percent of the population is Hispanic and yet we have over thirty percent of that that's infected with COVID so it's alarming."
The event is from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Nampa Civic Center. The city is encouraging people to attend virtually through a livestream, which you can watch by clicking here.
If you do attend in person, wear a mask and practice social distancing.
