Dear Friend,

America is facing an unprecedented public health and economic emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A rising death toll and expanding quarantine procedures require immediate action from Congress and the public. As the representative of California’s 3rd District, my priority is to protect the health and safety of our communities and ensure that the individual families, workers and small businesses who need relief most come first.

I am pleased to announce that today Congress passed H.R. 748, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the largest stimulus package in U.S. history. It provides a $2 trillion dollar investment in American workers and builds on the swift, bipartisan action that Congress has already taken to move two critical pieces of coronavirus response legislation into law. Included in this legislation are provisions to provide individual direct payments to working Americans, support for small businesses, expanded Unemployment Insurance benefits, student loan relief and more.

For additional details and answers to some of the most frequently asked questions regarding the new individual direct payment and small business relief provisions you can visit my website here and hereAdditionally, I have put together a comprehensive list of tools you can use to learn more about the resources available to you in Lake County during this time of crisis. Below you can access these federal, state, and local county resources:

If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, may have had contact with a person with COVID-19 or recently traveled to countries with apparent community spread, please call your health care provider or local public health department first before seeking medical care so that appropriate precautions can be taken.

For policy related questions and recommendations please feel free to call my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 225-1880 or visit my Contact web page here. I’d also like to encourage you to join my email newsletter and follow me on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates and information on this situation as it continues to develop.

Please know that during this time, my offices have undergone operational changes and our team is working remotely to continue serving our community. As you can imagine, we can receive hundreds of messages every day, even under more typical circumstances. My staff and I are continuing to regularly review all of them and I ask for frequent updates so I can always be aware of your concerns. But I ask for your patience as we try to get back to you as quickly as we can.

Please stay safe and comply with notices from public health officials. It is an honor to serve you, and together we can get through this emergency.

Sincerely,

JOHN GARAMENDI
