Public Health Emergency Thank You Letter to HHS Secretary Azar

July 30, 2020

To: Secretary Alex Azar

"As you know, this renewal means that the federal government can continue to deploy all resources and authorities necessary to protect the public and assist states and localities as they continue to respond to this urgent situation. We cannot afford to ease up on our response to this grave threat as the number of SARS-CoV-2 infections continues to rise at an alarming rate across the country. By maintaining the PHE status, we can facilitate coordination and collaboration across and amongst federal agencies and with state and local authorities, increase the pace of research on SARS-CoV-2, accelerate development and approval of medical countermeasures and novel diagnostics, and ensure that individuals, particularly those who are in the most vulnerable communities, have access to myriad necessary health care and other social services."
