Staff Report • Mar 24, 2020 at 3:09 PM

After receiving calls and requests regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), State Sen. Rusty Crowe, R-Johnson City, announced Tuesday he would be repurposing and refocusing his office and staff to work, during the General Assembly’s recess, as a resource center.

According to a press release from the Senate Republican Caucus, the center would be used to “quickly deal with and provide contacts regarding resources, responses, the economic impact and requests for information surrounding the coronavirus.”

Resource information provided would include small business support, COVID-19 testing sites, unemployment relief, relief for local governments, temporary assistance for needy families and childcare.

“This refocus and reorganization will help in providing the best information as quickly as possible as well as to quickly relay information and suggestions I am getting on the ground to the governor and to each appropriate departmental liaison,” Crowe said in the press release. “My goal is to be ready to help get information to you directly, and to bring in the proper officials and departmental liaisons to address issues quickly.”

Call 615-741-2468 or 615-741-7936 for questions and suggestions.
