Can I file taxes if my parents claimed me?

Dumb question but I make a little over 9k a year as a college student so I don’t file taxes and my parents claim me. I’ve never seen a problem with this until it comes to this covid-19 stimulus package that is supposed to give checks to people who filed taxes as many people have lost their jobs, etc. I am unable to go to my job because of the covid-19 situation but I also didn’t file 2019 taxes. So as I understand it, I wouldn’t technically qualify for one of the checks even though one of those could really help me during these times. Can i still file taxes or does anyone know of any information as to what they will do for people in situations like mine who didn’t make enough to file?
