This online tool shows how coronavirus can spread through farmworker housing. The spread of the virus can vary based on a range of housing factors - the number of people sharing a room, the size of the room, type of beds (single or bunk beds) and how much people are washing hands, social distancing and wearing face coverings. You can use this simulation tool to see how simple changes in shared housing and farmworker behaviors can affect the spread of infection.
