This afternoon, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) hosted a telephone town hall for over 10,000 Hawai‘i residents where she was joined by Hawaiʻi Lt. Governor Josh Green, a practicing physician who has served as the state’s lead official coordinating its COVID-19 coronavirus response.

“It is critical to keep people informed about what is happening in our state and country in response to this global pandemic. I want to thank Lt. Gov. Josh Green for joining me to answer people’s questions and update Hawai‘i residents on local and national actions. I will be hosting additional virtual forums to make sure my constituents have the information they need to be safe and weather this crisis,” Gabbard said in a press release.

Gabbard used the telephone town hall to update constituents regarding efforts by Congress and the Federal government to respond to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, including a critical look at the successes and failures of Federal departments and agencies in the first weeks of the crisis.

During the call, she and Lt. Gov. Green fielded questions ranging from testing and quarantine protocols to the impact on small businesses and efforts being made to secure the needed medical supplies to diagnose, treat, and care for Hawaii’s residents.
