State, Local, and Tribal Leaders –
As a reminder, the White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs will host a COVID-19 National Briefing Call for State, Local, and Tribal Officials on Wednesday, September 30, at 1:00 PM Eastern Time. We will be joined by Senior Administration Officials – including Dr. Deborah Birx – for a comprehensive update on COVID-19 trends, Operation Warp Speed, testing support for States, Tribes, and localities, and the 2020-21 flu season.
Prior to the call, we would like to flag a letter from President Trump to the Nation’s Governors outlining surged testing support to States. The Trump Administration is sending 100 million BinaxNOW rapid point-of-care tests across the country with each State receiving an allotment. Additional tests will be surged to nursing homes, HBCU’s, and Tribes (via the IHS). You can read the letter here: President Trump’s Letter to America’s Governors. And read more here: President Trump Announces Distribution of 150M Rapid Coronavirus Tests.
