Congressman Trone Releases COVID-19 Community Resource Guide

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman David Trone (MD-06) released a 17-page community resource guide containing information for federal, state, and local guidance related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Trone will continue to update the guide as more information and resources become available.

Trone released the guide a day after the House of Representatives passed the Families First Act, a bill that would provide free coronavirus testing for everyone, paid sick leave, expanded unemployment insurance, and funding for food security targeted toward seniors, students, and other vulnerable populations. This legislation follows the $8.3 billion supplemental the House passed previously and the President signed into law.

“The coronavirus outbreak is on the forefront of all of our minds as the virus continues to spread globally and within our community, and this resource guide will help direct everyone in Maryland’s Sixth District to the best place to find information,” said Congressman David Trone. “During this unprecedented health emergency, it’s important that everyone know the resources to turn to if they have questions or concerns in order to keep our families and communities safe.”

Congressman David Trone was elected to the House of Representatives in November 2018 to serve the 6th District of Maryland, which includes all or part of Montgomery, Frederick, Washington, Allegany, and Garrett Counties. This week, Trone held a call with all public health officials in all five counties to hear about what is happening on the ground and what resources they need in order to address the coronavirus. On Tuesday, he met with the Maryland Department of Health in order to coordinate support for Maryland’s efforts to rapidly respond to COVID-19. Trone’s website features best practices and information on how to find the best resources for COVID-19.
