This resource has been compiled by medical students at The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences on mass resources in Washington, D.C. during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are appreciative for the teams in Los Angeles County, Freedom Community Clinic (SF Bay Area), and NYU that inspired this work and provided a useful framework for this guide.

We hope this makes it easier to stay safe, informed and find peace during this time.

Please continue to e-mail us at DCcovidconnect@gmail.com if you know of any resources not on this list, especially those affecting our most vulnerable communities.

May we all be healthy, safe, and in community.
