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. The call 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, please review 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). Read the letter here: President Trump’s Letter to America’s Governors.
