COVID-19 and Older New Yorkers: Findings from the SILVER II Survey
While COVID-19 vaccines have reduced morbidity and mortality from COVID-19, many older adults continue to alter their lifestyles due to COVID-19, including isolation from family and support networks. As a follow-on to the SARS-CoV-2 Impact on Lives and Views of Elderly Residents (SILVER) study, ICAP researchers contacted older adults living at home in New York City to understand the ongoing challenges of COVID-19 on this population. In this webinar, ICAP shared results from the second round of the SILVER study and opened a conversation with New York City health leaders who provided new insights into how COVID-19 affects this sector of our society.
