Welcome to CovidCONNECT

A website to discover resources, stay current on the newest information and find support
The purpose of CovidCONNECT is to provide a resource for Maryland residents who have personal experience with COVID-19 – whether through having the disease yourself, or having it impact your life in other ways. Perhaps you nursed someone, or lost someone, who had COVID-19. Here you can read testimonials from other Marylanders who have had Covid, discover clinical trials in which you may be eligible to participate, educate yourself on the newest Covid-related information, and connect with others who have also suffered personal impact in this pandemic.

We wish you continued health and wellness, and thank you for your participation
