A message from Rob about COVID-19 (Coronavirus):

I know a lot of folks in our community are anxious about Coronavirus. I'm glad our Governor has been cautious and issued safety guidelines you can read about here, and I think it's important we all follow them. I'm proud to have allocated millions in additional funding for public health last year, then in early March voting in millions more specifically for response to the Coronavirus, then again in late April voting millions in emergency funding for rental assistance, targeted support for small businesses and investments in COVID testing for frontline workers and more. We have a lot more to do, like pushing for a rent and mortgage freeze for renters, homeowners & small business owners, but these are important first steps

If you are having difficulty accessing unemployment or other resources, or just have questions please don't hesitate to reach out to my office at (503) 986-1442 or rep.robnosse@oregonlegislature.gov. You can read more about our community and COVID-19 in my SE Examiner column here. Please stay safe and check in with your friends and family, and go to the Oregon Health Authority for more information here.
