As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, I’m doing everything in my power to limit the spread and impact of COVID-19.

  • On March 4th, we approved emergency funding to ensure the federal government has access to every tool available.  
  • I sent a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar to ask for better coordination between New Jersey and Federal officials. And I’ve been working with our delegation to make sure New Jersey is safe — including remaining in close contact with state officials who are monitoring for the appearance of the virus in our state.
  • On March 14, we approved the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, with a host of provisions aimed at ensuring access to free testing, food programs, paid sick leave, and more for families affected by coronavirus.


New Jersey has declared a statewide emergency, opening up additional resources and programs for New Jersey residents.

Call 2-1-1, the New Jersey 24-hour hotline that’s staffed by trained medical professionals ready to answer your questions. Translation services are available.

The state’s Department of Health has also collected resources for individuals, schools and businesses, and health professionals. You can visit here to learn more.
