BREAKING: Gov Abbott requires masks be worn in public in Texas. Yes it may be late but from other governors I have spoken to, there is huge relief. They believe this may be a tipping point moment for the country.

MLB's Utah lab is manufacturing tests for private use by their employees while desperate communities are about to hit a testing wall, if they haven't already. Ponder that when you get excited about the season starting.

BREAKING: Testing is about to reach capacity again nationally. LabCorp the biggest lab has capacity for 130k tests/day (out of the 500k+/day) but with the run up in cases are now running 5 day wait times. At 7 days, testing stops being of value. We may get there soon.

You have no idea how much it hurts not to have the approval of  @gordonhensleydc. Especially with his well known advocacy of consumers.

@Andy Slavitt @ 🏡: perhaps the worst, most anti-consumer  @CMSGov Administrator of modern era https://politi.co/3eQOu5q

We will pick up employment when Americans can safely travel and spend and employers can invest.

That won’t happen with the virus growing rapidly.

(P.S. this is not the kind of job growth you brag about.)

Heading on  @CNN at 12 Eastern if you want to hear an update.

"The Democratic-led House passed a bill this week to build on the ACA and give more people access to health coverage. The GOP is going in the exact opposite direction. If GOP got their way, 23 million people would lose coverage."  @Andy Slavitt @ 🏡 https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2020/07/01/supreme-court-save-obamacare-reject-trump-republic...

Food security is national security. That is all.

It's unconscionable this Administration is making it HARDER to get health care during a pandemic. Congress should immediately take up my Coronavirus Medicaid Response Act, which will speed federal aid to states providing vital  #Medicaid services to those hit hardest by  #COVID19.

Former CMS Administrator  @Andy Slavitt @ 🏡 says this bill “would protect vulnerable people from losing health coverage, protect safety net providers from cuts that could threaten access to care, & help shore up state budgets…not just in the current recession, but in future recessions.”

Haven’t seen a better summary of what’s going on and what we need to do.  @Andy Slavitt @ 🏡 consistently has had the best info & analysis throughout - no reason to doubt this. Scary, but there’s a clear solution - if there’s the political will.

As usual,  @Andy Slavitt @ 🏡 nails the public concerns on  #COVIDー19 without political taint. A valuable resource on the level of Dr. Fauci. (Well, Fauci before he was effectively muzzled.)

This thing could be largely under control by end of July — see Andy’s report today on how we can do it. Call/write your representatives on national and local levels to demand we pull together and take these steps.  #Covid_19  #publichealth  #WearAMask

Awesome to see one of my hero’s -  @Please wear a mask! Do it for USA, please... - with my favorite Covid-19 explainer/leader -  @Andy Slavitt @ 🏡. It could only be more perfect if it included  @Preet Bharara and a  @The Lincoln Project video!

 @Andy Slavitt @ 🏡 The same states that feel a-ok about shuttering women’s health clinics don’t think they can close *bars* during a *pandemic?*

Thank you  @Andy Slavitt @ 🏡 &  @Lana Slavitt for the support! The  @Minnesota Senate DFL is committed to accessible & affordable health care — including medications — for Minnesotans. This is horrifying. Help  #FlipMNSenate & we’ll fight for people, not Pharma!

Tnank you  @United States of Care for vision and leadership in crafting such a thoughtful and inclusive response.  @Grapevine Health

COVID-19 disproportionately impacts vulnerable populations and communities of color. Proactive identification of groups at the highest risk during a public health crisis must inform future pandemic response so that they get the help they need. 5/10

Co-Founder and Head of Public Engagement  @Natalie Davis joined  @Lanhee J. Chen and  @Andy Slavitt @ 🏡 to answer listener questions about how to talk to loved ones and bosses about wearing masks, social distancing, and other tough COVID conversations. What other questions should we answer?

Mask-wearing is the simplest proven way you can protect yourself and others—so why has it become so controversial? @ASlavitt, Natalie Davis, and @lanheechen attempt to make sense of it all on this week's #InTheBubble Monday Toolkit.

Smart thread but highlighting this. “Employers are now forcing people to make impossible choices. Their health or their income.” That’s why we are here. They wouldn’t pay unemployment long enough to make us safe and reopen the economy correctly.
