Migrant farm workers receive financial and COVID assistance from South Florida nonprofit – Central Florida News

Migrant farm workers receive financial and COVID assistance from South Florida nonprofit - Central Florida News

Palm Beach County migrant farm workers are testing COVID-19 10 percentage points more than the rest of the county.

This is according to Laura Kallus. She is CEO of the Caridad Center, a free health clinic in Boynton Beach.

Kallus says migrants who test positive and live below the poverty line cannot afford not to work in the fields. They face similar exposure to the coronavirus at home.

“Even though they can be asymptomatic, you know, we try to emphasize the importance of staying home and isolating yourself. If they live three or four families at the bottom of a caravan or an apartment, it is almost impossible for them to isolate themselves socially. So we see the whole household become infected. “

Volunteer doctors at the clinic say 68% of positive cases were from people who did not show symptoms. The center monitors COVID-positive patients every day and provides rent, medical and food assistance directly to their homes.
