Mar 24, 2020

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema joined a bipartisan group of Senators urging the White House to set up two specialized task forces to improve access to medical supplies and ensure that treatments and vaccines for COVID-19 are developed as efficiently as possible.
“Addressing the spread of coronavirus requires that we bring together agencies, non-profits, and researchers to increase medical supplies for frontline responders and expedite the development of treatments,” said Sinema.
“Given the unprecedented nature of this disease and its massive damage to the wellbeing of Americans, our economy, and the rest of the global community, we urge you to establish two temporary and specialized task forces. One to expedite and coordinate the development of COVID-19 vaccines, diagnostics, and treatments, and another to coordinate medical supply shortages and the development of innovative solutions to address these shortages,” the Senators wrote. 

Sinema has added a comprehensive resource page to her website,, for Arizonans looking for the latest information on coronavirus.
