Public service announcements have been developed by organizations in Santa Cruz and Monterey counties in English, Spanish and three indigenous languages, including Mixteco, Zapoteca and Triqui. An estimated 30,000 people in Monterey County (not all in the agriculture community) speak indigenous languages.

Natividad Medical Center led the creation of the PSAs for Monterey County and beyond. In Santa Cruz County, members of the Watsonville Campesino Appreciation Caravan worked with officials in the city of Watsonville and the county to create them. The bulk of Santa Cruz County’s COVID-19 cases have been in Watsonville so far.
