COVID-19 or “coronavirus” is now a global pandemic. Congress must take action to help Americans prepare and stay safe.
House Democrats have released a package of measures to mitigate the economic impact of coronavirus on Americans.
It includes emergency paid leave for employees affected by the outbreak, free coronavirus testing for all, a $2 billion boost to state unemployment insurance programs, more than $1 billion in nutritional aid, and an increase in federal Medicaid funds.
Without urgent action, we cannot slow the spread of the coronavirus outbreak – and too many Americans will be faced with a choice between staying home to avoid spreading illness and losing a paycheck.
