The devastating effects of COVID-19 continue to deeply affect families in the United States and across the globe. The American people deserve a proactive and comprehensive response from our leaders to address this unprecedented global public health crisis. It is imperative that we develop robust plans to:

  • Urgently address the continuing outbreak, taking all necessary measures to mitigate its impact and protect vulnerable Americans;
  • Build the necessary public health infrastructure to combat the growing pandemics of the future;
  • Ensure that people who lost their jobs due to the pandemic have the resources they need to cover their basic needs; and
  • Ensure that people who lose their jobs don’t also lose access to quality, affordable healthcare.
