The BEAT COVID-19 initiative is a one-of-a-kind grassroots system to give people in both communities, who otherwise might not feel comfortable getting tested, access to a primary care doctor, testing, educational support on how to safely isolate, and resources to overcome hardships associated with the coronavirus pandemic.
