All 50 US States Under Disaster Declaration For 1st Time in History

For the 1st time in US history, all 50 States are under a major disaster declaration.

Wyoming became 1 of the last states to receive the declaration for the coronavirus outbreak at the weekend.

Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon wrote a letter Thursday to formally request the declaration, stating it “will help us to prepare and mobilize resources when we need them“.

The declarations allows the states to use federal funds to fight the spread of the virus.
