Health Affairs extensively covered the COVID-19 pandemic this year. As 2020 draws to a close, we consider 10 of the lessons that have emerged from that coverage. In our new post, we summarize our year in COVID-19 coverage, as well as the other health policy issues you’ll find in Health Affairs—including our ahead-of-print articles that rapidly bring research to bear on the pandemic’s challenges.

1) According to Wei Lyu and George Wehby of the University of Iowa, mandating face masks in public is associated with a decline in the daily COVID-19 growth rate: https://bit.ly/2AGgKJ4

2) Stefan Pichler of the Swiss Economic Institute, Katherine Wen, and Nicholas Ziebarth's research article shows how COVID-19 emergency sick leave has reduced confirmed cases: https://bit.ly/3iWM5XZ

3) Increased testing and isolation may be the most effective, least costly alternative—in terms of money, economic growth, and human life—for controlling COVID-19. Read this study by Ravindra Prasan Rannan-Eliya of Institute for Health Policy and coauthors: https://bit.ly/2WVLpJW

4) Wei Lyu and George Wehby show how shelter-in-place orders reduce both daily COVID-19 hospitalizations and mortality growth rates within weeks of enactment: https://bit.ly/3iLMQ7e

5. Blacks and Hispanics (https://bit.ly/3iLMQ7e) are more likely (https://bit.ly/3jgTemp) to screen positive, be hospitalized, and die due to COVID-19 relative to non-Hispanic Whites. (First paper by Leonard Egede et al. of University of Wisconsin-Madison. Second paper by Jose Figuero of Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health et al.)

6. A. David Paltiel of Yale School of Public Health and coauthors write that vaccine implementation, including the pace of vaccination and the percent of the population ultimately vaccinated, will contribute more to the success of vaccination programs than a vaccine’s efficacy determined in clinical trials: https://bit.ly/32YTK2R

7) Hospitals reinvented patient and staff support systems during the COVID-19 pandemic to better cope with trauma. Read the article by Eric Wei and colleagues of NYC Health + Hospitals: https://bit.ly/3hcAWC5

8) The team at NYC Health + Hospitals led by now NYC Health Commissioner Dave Chokshi explain how expanded Medicaid coverage and insurance reimbursement for telehealth (https://bit.ly/3aZLeFs) played a pivotal role in the rapidly increased use of these services during the pandemic.

9) Research conducted and analyzed by Thomas Selden and colleagues from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) reveals that the majority of school employees and school-age children (https://bit.ly/3c4Xfbn) live in households including at least one adult with increased risk for severe COVID-19, and about half of all school employees have increased risk themselves.

10) Unionized health care workers in nursing homes (https://bit.ly/2FmHJv0) were associated with a decrease in COVID-19 mortality rates and greater access to personal protective equipment for workers, according to Adam Dean of The George Washington University and coauthors.

James W. Dearing and Maria Lapinski from Michigan State University explain why message framing matters when communicating with people who are dismissive or skeptical of climate change. Not everyone welcomes new programs, practices, policies, and technologies that promise to mitigate carbon emissions, so messaging is key. This article describes the concept of “multisolving” interventions and why focusing on the health benefits of climate mitigation efforts is important for achieving public support.

In their new blog post, Katherine E. Goodman, Anthony D. Harris, and Diane E. Hoffmann of the University of Maryland School of Medicine Official Page and the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law discuss the challenges to accessing two new monoclonal antibody treatments during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Fortunately, we have every reason to believe that these logistical and ethical challenges are surmountable with continued planning and dialogue. However, one additional consideration has received comparably little attention: the law. Legal restrictions may prevent health systems from prioritizing treatment for the patients who need it most."

In their new blog post, John Connolly, Pranay Nadella and David Grande of the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania discuss the insights that can be gained from reviewing the policy platforms of the incoming House of Representatives.

"Analysis of policy platforms of the incoming House of Representatives suggests that we should expect continued protections for preexisting conditions, partisan squabbling over lowering drug prices, preservation of the ACA, and an intra-party battle among Democrats over health insurance reform."

Many look forward to special holiday meals or sweets all year—cookies, latkes, eggnog, and much more. As holiday foods and drinks come back into our kitchens, we should remember that the relationship between food and health is complex. In an article published in Health Affairs’ Health and Food issue in November 2015, Sara Bleich and coauthors discuss the strong, complex relationship between an individual’s food choice and their surrounding environment: https://bit.ly/34FTZ3D

In their new blog post, Jackson T. Bowers, Callie A. Scott, Kathi H. Mooney, Sandra G. Jost, Nina R. O’Connor, and Justin E. Bekelman of the Penn Center for Innovation and the University of Utah College of Nursing discuss how, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, payers have shown willingness to engage in innovative Hospital at Home models.

"Hospital at Home (HaH) models are one way to reduce preventable acute care and shift unpreventable acute care to a more cost-effective setting, all while keeping patients in the comfort of their homes. While data support exploration of oncology HaH, lack of reimbursement for intensive in-home acute care remains the biggest barrier to adoption."
