Thank you for your continued efforts in supporting the whole-of-America approach to respond to and mitigate the impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) for the benefit of the people of California.As you know, our citizens are best served when response is locally executed, State managed, and Federally supported. The Federal government scales best practices, coordinates key priorities, provides regulatory flexibilities, guidance, and key resources to supplement, but not replace, private sector, local, and State resources.
On January 31, the Trump Administration declared the coronavirus a public health emergency. The declaration set in motion the Trump Administration’s whole-of-government approach to protecting the health of Americans in response to the coronavirus.
Working in partnership with State, Local, and Tribal leaders, the President and Administration have and continue to leverage all resources to respond to the coronavirus, bringing together government and private industry in a collaborative response.
Please read the information provided, and click on the button below, to access a fact sheet overviewing Federal coordination and assistance provided to the State of California and the people of California to combat the coronavirus. This information is bolstered by hundreds of additional actions by the Federal government to help the people of California in partnership with State and local leaders.
