The Covid 19 Pandemic has created many barriers for treating patients with infectious diseases. We are an urban Health Care Center located in Newark NJ, which had one of the highest rates of Covid in the state. Our patients are living in shelters, multifamily dwellings, public housing and on the street. Public transportation was an issue for a time and it was difficult. Will investigate use of Monoclonal Antibodies to be used on Covid positive people who are high risk to keep them out of the hospital.
