As Michigan copes with the coronavirus crisis, I wanted to let you know about resources that may help you and your family.
On March 27, the bipartisan Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act was signed into law. It provides a major infusion of health care resources, continued income for families, and economic stability for workers and businesses. This bill provides critical funding for...
...hospitals and health care providers, expands unemployment insurance, provides direct payments to Americans, and supports our Michigan businesses—large and small—and their employees.
This legislation follows the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which was signed into law on March 18. The bipartisan bill will give many employees who are experiencing symptoms or taking care of a child paid sick leave, paid family and medical leave, and enhanced unemployment insurance. The bill also increases access to food for expecting mothers, seniors, and children. Finally, the bill ensures people tested for coronavirus will not have to pay for the test.

If you or a family member is experiencing symptoms, visit the CDC website and call your local health care provider or the Michigan coronavirus hotline at 888-535-6136.
