Following are the latest coronavirus news and resources.

Has YOUR Organization Signed On? Act For Older Adults
This week we kicked off our national advocacy campaign to fight for older adults during this pandemic. The Act For Older Adults campaign rallies all Americans to urge Congress to enact legislation to deliver crucial resources to older adults and aging services providers.

LeadingAge sent a letter to Congress filled with robust and detailed asks on behalf of our members. Now we’re asking every LeadingAge member organization to add its name to our COVID-19 legislative asks. Signing on takes just a few moments -- but will have incredible impact on Capitol Hill. Be sure YOUR organization is counted among supporters! 

Already signed on? Visit the campaign web page at leadingage.org/act to find more ways to get involved -- including by sharing our campaign video in your social media accounts. And watch this email to learn how you can do your part on Tuesday’s National Day of Action For Older Adults!

Reopening Resources Insights and Tools From LeadingAge
When it comes to the full spectrum of aging services, there’s no one way to approach reopening and recovery. We trust our providers to forge their own best path, and LeadingAge staff experts are developing articles and materials to help you make decisions.

A complete timeline of insights, tools, and useful links is available here, so you’ll never miss an update.
