A message from Congressman Engel
I am deeply distressed by the direct impact of the Coronavirus to our Congressional district; I commend our state and local elected officials for their swift actions to protect our community. I hold the Trump administration, with their inability to adequately address the outbreak, their decimation of the CDC, and their lying, accountable. Congress has already passed a $8.3 billion package, triple what Trump proposed, to fight the virus. I helped introduce the Paid Sick Days for Public Health Emergencies and Personal Family Care Act to require employers to provide 14 days of paid sick leave to anyone if quarantined or impacted by school closure. I will keep fighting for resources for Westchester and The Bronx, please stay safe and take the recommended precautions.
