Dear Friends,

Tomorrow morning, I will be participating in the Energy and Commerce Committee Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations hearing -On the Front Line: How Governors are Battling the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The Department of Health and Human Services(HHS) is reminding eligible providers that they must accept the Terms and Conditions and submit revenue information by June 3, 2020 in order to receive additional payment from the general $50 billion distribution of the Provider Relief Fund.

  • HHS awarded an additional $628 million to an existing contract with Emergent BioSolutions to advance manufacturing capabilities and capacity for a potential COVID-19 vaccine as well as therapeutics.

The University of California, Los Angeles released data on Tribal COVID-19 case rates, showing that some Tribal Nations have higher infection rates than the 50 states.

Until next time, this is your doctor's note.
