Domestic Public Health Response to

COVID-19: Current Status



Updated April 20, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting communities throughout the United States, with case counts
changing daily. Over 760,000 cases have been reported in 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto
Rico, Guarm the Northern Manana Islands, md the U S. Virgin Islands, ith over 35.000 deaths reported.
(Data from compiled state and local reports.) Containment and mitigation efforts by federal, state, and
local governments have been undertaken to flatten the curve-that is, to slow widespread transmission
that could overwhelm the nation's health care system.
This CRS Insight presents selected information and resources relevant to the domestic public health
response to COVID-19 in containing and mitigating the spread and impact of the disease. As the situation
evolves, this Insight will be updated. For further information on other issues related to COVID-19, see the
