Press Release

(Washington, D.C.) - Congressman Sires released the following statement after the President suggested that preventative measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 might be rolled back:

“While the social distancing and quarantine measures put in place can be straining – it is for the health of our families and communities. If we are to be successful in fighting the spread of COVID-19, and flattening the curve to assist our healthcare workers, we must take these precautions seriously. We need national leadership at this moment, not tweets suggesting that preventative measures will be reevaluated. This is dangerous and counterproductive. The President, and all leaders at the local, state, and federal level, must take this outbreak seriously and follow the advice of medical professionals.”
