GLEN ROCK, NJ – This week, U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) held his 49th “Cup of Joe with Josh” Town Hall virtually on Facebook Live because of statewide stay-at-home orders to combat the coronavirus outbreak. Thousands of Fifth District residents tuned in and asked questions about the coronavirus, congressional action, and resources to combat the outbreak and its impacts, support for small businesses, and supplies for front-line health care workers. 

“I’d like to thank everyone who tuned into my virtual ‘Cup of Joe with Josh’ Town Hall, where I was able to connect with residents all across North Jersey, while taking proper precautions and stay at home to help stop the spread of this virus,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5). “Hearing from the folks I represent is an essential part of my ability to best represent you in Congress. I will continue to update North Jersey on what I’m doing to combat this outbreak, to help ensure our hospitals have the resources they need, to increase testing, and to support our communities and local businesses impacted by this public health crisis.”

Gottheimer highlighted Congress’ new bipartisan interim emergency package that includes $320 billion for small businesses by strengthening the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), $75 billion to provide resources to the frontlines for hospitals and health care workers, including Personal Protective Equipment, and $25 billion for coronavirus testing, which is key to be able to eventually safely reopen our economy and recover.
