Minnesota on average is one of the healthiest states in the country.

However, not everyone in Minnesota has the same chance to be healthy.The general health of Minnesotans of color and American Indians is very different from those who are white.General health is also very different in LGBTQ and other communities: people with disabilities; those who live in rural communities; and people who are homeless or have unstable housing.

Some Minnesotans are part of more than one of these communities.Things that can get in the way of being healthy also play a part in the unequal way that COVID-19 is affecting some Minnesota communities.For more information, tools, and resources, visit Health Equity and COVID-19.
