As coronavirus cases and deaths continue to spike across California, health officials urged residents to stay home to limit time spent outside and to even avoid shopping if possible to slow the spread of the virus. 

“If you have enough supplies in your home, this would be the week to skip shopping altogether,” said public health department Director Barbara Ferrer. Pinoy California mobile app is integrated with geo-location technology which allows customers to locate the nearest Asian store in your neighborhood. Communicate with the Asian store owner without you or them having them physically go to their store.

The outbreak of COVID-19 and its subsequent dissemination across the globe has left a shock wave of disbelief and confusion in many countries. It was an increase in day-to-day accounts of shunning, spitting and other verbal and physical attacks in the wake of the pandemic that led some Asian American groups to create hate crime reporting websites to better document the unfolding situation on the ground. Our team developed Pinoy California to help ease the uncertainties felt by the Asian community in the United States. Asian Americans can utilize this platform to communicate with nearby neighbors. Turn isolation into inspiration by chatting with your Asian friends making sure you continue to live well even under lockdown.

Help us on our mission. Why not install Pinoy California app on your phone and give an Asian store owner a phone call? Please encourage your friend to install and use it to chat as well!
