Emergency COVID-19 Legislation
We’re writing to our Representatives and Senators, demanding that Congress pass effective emergency COVID-19 legislation. The House passed some provisions, but the Senate has been obstructing needed measures.
The next COVID-19 relief bill must include full protections for frontline health workers, patients, and the public during this crisis, as is necessary to contain this pandemic.
The next legislation must include a mandate for issuance and strict enforcement of new comprehensive, stringent federal occupational safety and health standards to protect health care workers.
The legislation must also appropriate at least $10 billion specifically to deliver effective equipment (like N95s) to nurses and other frontline healthcare professionals.
