The Desert Healthcare District & Foundation recently unveiled a new bilingual website. It’s designed to be a ‘one-stop shop’ for the community’s coronavirus questions and concerns.

The site shows the best ways to protect yourself from the virus and features a video message from Dr. Conrado Barzarga, the District’s CEO.

“We want to sure our residents have access to accurate information about covid-19,” said Barzaga. “We will be doing a series of informational videos every week.”

People can also easily access the latest coronavirus numbers on a daily basis. There’s also a feature where you can look up resources for residents, employees and/or businesses.

“We want to make it easier for our families to have access to a number of resources, access to food, and access to healthcare,” said Barzaga.

You can also see the latest executive orders in place and even take a seven question quiz if you’re concerned you might have been exposed to the virus.
