COVID-19 Information: Families First Coronavirus Response Act

We pray our brief Coronavirus (COVID-19) informational note finds you and yours safe and healthy.

President Trump has signed into law H.R. 6201, FAMILIES FIRST CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE ACT, which among other measures establishes two weeks of paid sick and family leave, guarantees free coronavirus testing, protects public health workers, enhances Unemployment Insurance, expands food security initiatives, and provides important benefits to children and families. A summary of the bill can be accessed here! 

This is just one more piece of the expanding federal government’s coordinated Coronavirus (COVID-19) response. The White House is also asking Congress for “phase three” — a $1 trillion coronavirus relief and economic stimulus plan that would include industry-specific bailouts and payments to individual taxpayers.  We’ll keep you updated.

Please stay informed by visiting the Resource Pages posted on our blog on a regular basis, and share with your networks. 

Finally, if you aren’t doing so already, we invite you to follow all of our social media platforms for regular updates on Coronavirus news and other resources.

 

Stay safe and healthy.
