Update on Administration Efforts on COVID-19, 03/23/20
Source: White House Office of Public Liaison
Today President Trump signed an Executive Order providing the authority to address, if necessary, hoarding that threatens the supply of necessary health and medical resources. This includes the action of hoarding unnecessary quantities of items for the purpose of selling them above the fair market value. To implement the order, the President has delegated to HSS the authority to designate scarce resources or resources the supply of which would be threatened by hoarding. DOJ will work with HHS to enforce the anti-hoarding provisions of the order in cases where hoarding may be impeding the supply of health and medical resources needed to combat the spread of the coronavirus. This action will help ensure that hospitals, first-responders, and doctors receive sufficient supplies of critical medical equipment. President Trump is bringing to bear every resource, power, and authority necessary to defeat the coronavirus.
