CVOEO calls for equitable access to
COVID-19 rapid antigen tests 
CVOEO Executive Director, Paul Dragon
Health disparities are systemic and reflect social and economic marginalization, but are avoidable with intention. Knowing this, we must ensure that the State of Vermont does everything in its power to get rapid test kits to the people who have the greatest barriers to access, but are the most likely to experience negative outcomes from this pandemic. This is a matter of racial, social, and economic justice. 
The most important role of government is to dismantle health, social, and economic barriers and create a sense of belonging for people to thrive.
