NEW YORK CITY- Outpost Club, a New York-based real estate company operating 25 co-living communities across New York, New Jersey and California, will create dedicated housing for traveling doctors and nurses on the frontlines treating coronavirus, or COVID-19, patients. Outpost plans to allocate complete apartments or houses solely for the incoming medical staff.

Outpost has issued two flat-special discounted rates at $990 or $1190 per month for housing, which includes utilities. Pricing ultimately depends on the location. No security deposit will be required. The new medical staff tenants are allowed to stay on a month-to-month basis.

"Our company was founded on the idea of reducing the burden of finding a place to live in a new city while also creating community," said Outpost Co-Founder Sergii Starostin in a prepared statement. "Now it's our job to do our part in helping to protect our local communities and contributing in any way we can in the fight against this pandemic."

Doctors and nurses will undergo a quick application and relocation process to the cities in need. Interested applicants can visit to apply and can use the referral code "HEROES." Once an application is received, they can move in within 24 hours.

The dedicated housing will be available in Brooklyn and Manhattan, New York, Jersey City and San Francisco, all in proximity to the hardest-hit areas, where thousands of makeshift hospital beds will be constructed in the coming weeks.
