WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) sent a letter to President Trump supporting Governor Cooper’s Disaster Declaration request for North Carolina to help combat coronavirus.

“North Carolina continues to respond to this unfolding global pandemic,” Senator Tillis wrote. “Thus far, there have been 297 confirmed COVID-19 cases. Our state has and continues to take unprecedented actions to combat the spread of the virus, protect public health, and mitigate the severity of its impact. The widespread impact of this disaster has exceeded the state and local governments’ capabilities.”

“Immediate action is critical to stem the spread and impacts of COVID-19,” Senator Tillis continued. “We respectfully request your fair and timely consideration of the Governor’s request.”
