Stifel – CARES Act – Summary Information 3-30-2020 (002)

State and local governments across the nation have provided a myriad of responses to the spread of COVID-19 and continue to face tremendous challenges. The $2 trillion CARES Act was signed into law by President Trump on Friday, March 27, 2020. It builds upon various actions already taken by the federal government, including emergency actions by the Federal Reserve, and seeks to address numerous dislocations at the individual, corporate, and state and local levels across the country. Below, we summarize these as well our views on emerging opportunities to serve our clients.

MH Pandemic Policy

In response to the threat of an influenza pandemic, the City of Maryland Heights has prepared this plan to meet the following objectives:

  1. Establish departmental service continuity plans in the event of pandemic influenza in order to insure delivery of basic city services.
  1. Mitigate the spread of pandemic influenza among employees.
  1. Assist employees and their families in managing personal and/or family illnesses during a pandemic influenza outbreak.

The KEY priority will be ensuring that essential city operations continue.  Each department must develop a list of service priorities and then develop plans for meeting those priorities.

Managing the pandemic—focusing on continuity of operations with considerable loss of staff, depleted resources, a struggling economy, and a nervous public—will be a considerable challenge.  Planning increases the likelihood that the city will be able to continue service operations during a global health crisis.
