Several leading landscape industry organizations have partnered to provide a fact sheet about COVID-19 and vaccines that company owners can share with employees. The fact sheet, which is customized for the landscape industry, offers basic information about the dangers of the virus, discusses the importance of vaccination, and debunks myths about the vaccine.

Creators of the fact sheet, available in English and Spanish, understand that communities of color, including Latinos, may have concerns about the COVID-19 vaccine. They have found the document to be helpful in communicating with the Latino community about the vaccine.
