League Weekly COVID-19 Update: Aug. 27-Sept. 2

September 2, 2020
The Department of Finance (DOF) launched their Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) Web Portal and updated resources related to CARES Act funding reporting for cities. 
Cities can access the web portal, an updated Frequently Asked Questions document, and a User Guide from the DOF webpage for COVID-19 Information. 
The League hosted a webinar Aug. 28 with DOF to walk cities through the new web portal. For cities who were not able to participate, the webinar slides and recording are available for review. The League has also provided a more city-specific FAQ for cities to reference.

Gov. Gavin Newsom signed statewide COVID-19 tenant and landlord legislation, and announced a new statewide framework to reopen California’s economy. This new framework has four tiers which are determined by the number of cases per 100,000 residents and the percentage of COVID-19 tests that come back positive. The Governor also signed legislation to help with evictions and also signed an executive order to increase testing capacity. 
Below is a brief recap of recent and ongoing significant COVID-19 developments.
