Marsha Blackburn Report: Supporting Tennesseans

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Knowing that more than 3 million Americans lost their jobs last week due to the coronavirus pandemic absolutely breaks my heart. Our small businesses are among the hardest hit–and they make up 99.5% of all companies in our state. Many small business owners have shared with me how their dreams are shattered, through no fault of their own.

This week Congress passed the bipartisan CARES Act to help bridge these next few months. The CARES Act will shore up a foundation for the small business sector and provide relief for our singers and songwriters, rideshare drivers, flight attendants, and so many others. It will also provide our health workers the supplies and financial support to meet the needs of Americans. 

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Public Affairs Staff

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – In line with directives from the Department of the Army, Fort Campbell has upgraded the installation’s Health Protection Condition Level (HPCON) to level Charlie.

There are not yet any confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) on Fort Campbell, but there are more than 200 tests pending. Leaders have taken these actions out of an abundance of caution, at the direction of the Army, and to mirror the efforts of civilian partners as they work together to mitigate the spread of the virus.

In terms of personal impact, the upgrade to HPCON level Charlie will not significantly differ from the modifications announced March 24th during the installation’s virtual town hall meeting.
