COVID Resources

Elected officials at all levels of government must step up and address this pandemic. Congresswoman Porter was one of the first elected officials to sound the alarm on the threat of the coronavirus back in January, when the first case was identified in Orange County.

Throughout this crisis, Congresswoman Porter’s top focus has been sharing up-to-date information and conducting aggressive oversight of the government’s response to the outbreak. She is committed to helping Orange County families get the resources, care, and services that they need to make it through this pandemic.
