Rick Scott Showcases ‘STOP COVID-19 Act’ on Capitol Hill

According to the senator’s office, Scott’s bill would  “create a program for cities and counties to increase testing, contact tracing and transparency efforts in order to reduce the spread of COVID-19.” The proposal would have cities and counties create a “voluntary, data-driven COVID testing and contact tracing program" which would measure positive rates and test results, relying for two months from money from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund which would then continue at a reduced rate.
