This was made at an early morning press conference which included Teaneck Mayor Mohammed Hameeduddin, Teaneck Township Manager Dean Kazinci, Bergen County Executive James Tedesco, US Congressman Josh Gottheimer and officials from Holy Name Medical Center.
Congressman Gottheimer repeated the announcements of US House of Representatives passing bipartisan emergency legislation to invest in a response to the crisis. This included support for state and local health agencies, vaccine and treatment development, and loans for affected small businesses. This bipartisan bill was then passed by the Senate and signed into law.
And on Saturday, the House passed a second bipartisan bill to continue addressing the coronavirus crisis, to keep families across our country safe, and to stimulate the economy. This bipartisan legislation provides coronavirus testing free of charge to all patients, emergency leave with two weeks of paid sick leave, up to three months of paid family and medical leave, enhanced Unemployment Insurance to protect furloughed workers, increased federal investment to help state and local governments and health systems respond to the virus, and strengthened food security programs for children, school students, seniors, and food banks.
