President Donald Trump has approved a disaster declaration for the Commonwealth of MA and ordered federal assistance to help with recovery in areas impacted by COVID-19.

"Georgia is grateful for this designation, as it will enable the state to continue partnering with federal agencies in a coordinated fight against this pandemic", Governor Kemp said.

Federal funding is also available to state, tribal, and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations for emergency protective measures, including direct federal assistance, for all areas in MI impacted by COVID-19, according to the White House.

The federal assistance will supplement state, tribal, and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by the outbreak of COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, the statement said.

"The COVID-19 outbreak has taxed our commonwealth and our communities in ways that are nearly incomprehensible", Wolf said. "I am calling on the president and the federal government to make available to us the assistance that will make a tangible difference in the lives of our friends and neighbors, and the dedicated public servants who are working in overdrive to support them".

The declaration for federal assistance now covers Emergency Protective Measures, which are those actions taken to eliminate or lessen immediate threats to lives, public health, or safety.
