From the Document: "Response to the coronavirus will necessitate a whole of community and whole of nation response. This document is one of a series designed to facilitate the sharing of best practices from other disaster events combined with the experiences of communities that have already faced some of the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] challenges. It is not exhaustive, but instead highlights some key areas where communities could benefit from the experiences of others. Each community knows their requirements best. [...] [1] Members of the National Guard can be activated to respond to a pandemic under state law, or under Titles 10 and 32 of the U.S. Code. [2] As of March 28, 2020, over 13,880 National Guard soldiers and airmen have been activated to support COVID-19 response efforts. [3] This post contains considerations and recommendations from previous incidents and existing information, which may be helpful to support planning efforts for COVID-19 efforts."
