ABSTRACT

NACo Analysis of the Third COVID-19 Supplemental: The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (H.R. 748)   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "Counties are responding to the coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic and are on the front lines of our nation's local public health emergency response and overall public safety efforts. Now, more than ever, we need strong federal, state and local intergovernmental partnership to address this crisis. As the ground troops in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, counties are rapidly disseminating factual and timely updates to the public, while pursuing containment and mitigation strategies. Counties invest $83 billion annually in community health systems and support 903 hospitals, 824 long-term care facilities and over 1,900 public health departments. These local agencies are essential components of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's COVID-19 efforts at the local level. Counties nationwide are committed to working with both Congress and the administration to advance legislation that assists with the mitigation of this public health crisis and its potential far reaching economic, health and safety impacts on our nation."
