MAJOR DISASTER NOW DECLARED IN ALL 50 STATES

Today, President Trump issued a major disaster declaration for the state of Wyoming, which means now all 50 states now have a declaration due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is the first time a president has ever declared a major disaster in all 50 states at once, according to Deputy Press Secretary Judd Deere.

Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon formally sought the declaration on Thursday in a letter to the president.  The state had seen more than 200 coronavirus cases at that time.

The declarations make federal funding available for state and local governments, as well as some nonprofit organizations, according to the White House.  They can also help state governments coordinate with federal resources like the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Army Corps of Engineers.
