Research Purpose and Application Value: This study hopes to put forward some feasible reference logic in policy for the prevention and control of group epidemics in a small area, so as to reduce the burden of epidemic prevention and control at the national and local levels indirectly. Research Method: This study is based on typical cases. The selected cases have the characteristics of study, research and reference. This study lists and describes 7 cases of prevention and control of COVID-19 in communities in China since the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020. The following are the main practices of these communities in community-based COVID-19 prevention and control. Results: Communities, as the Last Mile of epidemic prevention and control, have achieved some results in the prevention and control of COVID-19, including communication, monitoring, proxy services, construction of service team, et al., thus providing a feasible reference logic in policy for the prevention and control of group epidemics in a small area.
