• Across the U.S., communities of color are being disproportionately affected by COVID-19, experiencing higher rates of infection and mortality.
  • As coronavirus testing rapidly evolves, breakthrough innovation such as the FDA-authorized antigen test raises hope and concerns about the test’s reliability.
