As the government cuts back its programs, find resources near you to continue protecting yourself and others.
The Biden Administration is declaring an end to the Public Health Emergency on May 11 even though the pandemic is not yet over.
- This means less help will be available for everyone affected by COVID in any way.
- Although the government and the employers are more interested in corporate profits than in our needs and health, we can organize to fight back.
- We can help each other deal with the cuts and protect our health.
- Many resources will be taken away. Even without COVID, we need these resources.
- It is good news that COVID cases are decreasing (for now, at least), but we still have to help each other.
Here’s where to get help with COVID-related issues. As the emergency ends, mutual aid and other resources in our communities can help fill the gaps in accessing:
- Search for testing resources near you
- Request free Covid test kits
- Check the expiration date extensions for Covid rapid tests
- Organizations (even those without non-profit status) and individuals are eligible to request free masks from Project N95
- For university students, visit COVID Safe Campus
- Local rental assistance organizations and funds
- Crisis support
