Initial funding will be used to support the work of the public health sector and community-based nonprofits to implement actions targeted at reducing the spread of the COVID-19. This includes protecting the health care workers on the front-lines who are playing a critical role in testing and screening. The Fund will also expand regional test sites and screenings, and support self-quarantine measures, such as home visits and distribution of food supplies to populations disproportionately impacted by the outbreak.
