Protect Your Home from COVID-19
Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
COVID-19 can spread anywhere – even places where you feel safe, like your home. If one person in your household gets COVID-19, it can spread to others in your home. If your household includes one or more people who are more likely to get very sick from COVID-19, then all household members should act as if they are more likely to get very sick. Consider wearing masks in shared spaces around others in your home. In shared spaces, stay about 2 arm lengths apart, wash your hands often using soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and monitor your health daily.

501(c)(6) Organizations Need PPP Access on Inclusive and Equitable Terms
With COVID-19 relief talks at a stalemate in the Senate
until after Labor Day, and the House not reconvening until mid-September, critically needed relief is further delayed. While the issue of expanding the PPP continues to hold bipartisan support in both chambers, sticking points in the negotiations are plentiful and include how much money to give state and local governments, how much weekly unemployment benefits should be and whether to appropriate billions of dollars to the US Postal Service, among other major issues.
WHAT CAN WE DO?
You can do your part to urge lawmakers to expand the PPP on inclusive, equitable terms and remain vigilant to buttress nonprofit association support in Congress.
