Below are helpful resources related to COVID-19

While Wyoming often prides itself on being isolated from the mainstream, it is certainly not immune to all the world health crises. As the number of COVID-19, or coronavirus, cases rise in the United States, it is important that we take precautions to keep ourselves and our communities safe.

So far, Congress has passed three coronavirus relief packages. The first, which the Senate passed on March 5, was an emergency funding package that focused on vaccines and research and development. The second, which the Senate passed on March 18, was the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. It provides for free testing for those who need it, paid sick leave and unemployment benefits. 

The third, which passed the Senate on March 25, was the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. This package provides financial assistance to workers, families and businesses. The CARES Act helps small businesses keep payroll and stay open with programs like the Paycheck Protection Program. Wyoming businesses were provided more than $800 million and Congress has recently added more money for the program. It will also assist with one-time checks to most Americans, expand unemployment insurance, provide support to rural hospitals, broaden telehealth networks and more. Wyoming’s state and local governments are slated to receive at least $1.25 billion in federal aid from the third package.

America has not had a semi-quarantine like this in my lifetime. We must take it upon ourselves, following cautionary steps, to slow the spread of this virus within our communities. I’m glad to be a member of the White House task force to reopen the economy and look forward to working with President Trump.

My office is taking appropriate precautions but is planning on continuing operations to assist constituents.
