Press Release

Washington, D.C. - Today, Congressman Harley Rouda (CA-48), questioned public health experts at the Committee of Oversight and Reform's hearing on "Coronavirus Preparedness and Response."

"Dr. Fauci and other public health experts were clear — we must act now to slow the spread of COVID-19," said Rouda. "This is no longer about containment; we must take immediate measures to mitigate risk and 'flatten the curve' to protect American families and prevent an exhaustion of our health care system."

On Monday, Congressman Rouda visited the Department of Health and Human Services' Operations Center to meet with Dr. Robert Kadlec, the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, to receive updates about mitigation efforts.
