Tell Your Congressmen and Senators: Our US Fishing Industry Faces The Coronavirus Disaster

With the Coronavirus being spread around the world and nations reacting to this threat in many different ways, from doing nothing, to closing the borders and full quarantines, the unintended effects of such government actions have yet to be fully felt. Granted the stock market has lost 30% in value in just 3 weeks time, the average American really doesn’t feel that unless he is living on his investment returns. With the closing of schools, and restaurants and any places of public gatherings an enormous crisis is being created because many people are being put out of work and some of them may not have a business to come back to when the crisis is over. The Coronavirus may topple an empire if we let it. >click to read< 06:17

      A form letter response to this article about the fishing industry that we posted on our website doesn’t address the issue, Senator. Unacceptable. 
      Senator Maggie Hassan
      11:31 AM Dear Ms. (Citizen),
      Thank you for contacting me regarding the Congressional response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. I know that this is an incredibly difficult and stressful time for many people, and my office stands ready to help in any way that we can.
      Over the past several weeks, I have been in close contact with Governor Sununu and public health officials, and have worked with my colleagues to pass three major bipartisan bills to help address our state’s most pressing COVID-19 challenges. Most recently, Congress passed a bipartisan COVID-19 response package that provides direct cash assistance to individuals and small businesses, more than $100 billion in funding to hospitals and health care workers to help scale up their ability to treat patients, and $1.25 billion for New Hampshire state and local governments to help cover increased costs and reduced revenues as a result of COVID-19. There is still far more work to do, and I will continue to work closely with the governor, the New Hampshire Congressional Delegation, and public health officials to support response efforts.
      Please also remember that the COVID-19 pandemic requires all of us to come together and do everything that we can to limit the spread of the virus and support each other. First, you should frequently wash your hands and disinfect commonly touched surfaces such as cell phones and door knobs. Second, if you feel sick, you should stay home and immediately call your doctor. Third, everyone – regardless of whether you are experiencing any symptoms – should also practice what public health experts call social distancing. That means you should stay home if at all possible, and if you must go out, avoid handshaking and try to stay six feet away from other people. Even though it is uncomfortable, practicing social distancing will help slow down the spread of the virus and save lives.
      Again, I know how challenging this time is for everyone. I thank you and appreciate all that you are doing to prevent the spread of this virus. For more information about COVID-19 and resources that are available to you and your loved ones, please visit my website at https://www.Hassan.Senate.Gov/.
      With every good wish,
      Margaret Wood Hassan
      United States Senator
