COVID-19 Community Report Episode 14: Updates From Congressman John Garamendi - May 1, 2020

Today,  May 1st, we're pleased to welcome Congressman John Garamendi back to the show.  We last spoke with him on April 3, as Congress was passing its first stimulus bill.  On April 21, Congressman Garamendi introduced legislation called the UNITE Act (Undertaking National Initiatives to Tackle Epidemics).  This bill would mobilize experienced existing organizations such as AmeriCorps, Peace Corps, and FEMA volunteers to support public health responders with COVID-19 contact tracing and testing.
