With the uncertainty of the novel coronavirus pandemic, our community of first responders is facing tremendous pressures to answer the call. WFCA is committed to being a trusted resource by providing relevant information about COVID-19 that you can use at work and at home. Last week, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and the Economic Security (CARES) Act was passed by Congress and signed by the President. The CARES Act will allocate $2.2 trillion in support to individuals and businesses affected by the pandemic and economic downturn. Understandably, many people have questions about how the new law will impact their families and businesses. WFCA has compiled a few resources on this topic you may find helpful as you manage through the COVID-19 crisis.
