State & Local Leaders – Thank you for joining the White House COVID-19 briefing call with Vice President Mike Pence and Senior Administration Officials on Wednesday, March 18. We appreciate your partnership in this whole-of-government, all-of-America approach to address COVID-19 and recognize the important role you play in keeping Americans safe and healthy. As an immediate follow-up to the call, we hope that you will share CDC’s mitigation guidelines – 15 Days to Slow the Spread – publicly through social media, newsletters, and other channels. We also want to highlight a few key actions on items discussed on the call. As a reminder, response and recovery is locally executed, state managed, and federally supported. Please continue to work with your local emergency management offices up through your State Emergency Management Agencies (here), all of which are in close coordination with FEMA and HHS.
