Northwest Arkansas physician, Dr. Sheldon Riklon, is part of a new task force formed to educate Marshallese migrants about the COVID-19 pandemic.

A new Marshallese COVID-19 Task Force met for the first time this week in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Comprised of Marshallese leaders and medical providers, the task force is providing bilingual guidance to thousands of Marshallese migrants living in the tri-state area. Spokesperson Dr. Sheldon Riklon says islanders are at higher risk for infection.
