Dear Colleagues --
As you know, Congress has been urgently negotiating a massive COVID-19 relief legislative package in one of the most intensive, if not divisive, episodes in congressional history.
That said, Peter and Trish have prepared, and we now forward, a cover note of COVID-19 questions and answers, together with the sequence of congressional legislation that provides a snapshot of where things stand as of about noon today (March 24, 2020).
PLEASE NOTE: It is our understanding from Peter and Trish that passage of the final bill is imminent (likely no later than tonight). Once we receive the final bill, we will immediately review it and provide an analysis of the overall bill with an emphasis on any matters that would affect the natural products/dietary supplement industry specifically. We will convene a conference call a little later this week (details to follow shortly) to provide you a verbal analysis with commentary and any guidance, both on how you may wish to take advantage of business relief provisions or other industry-specific impact you should know and act on quickly.
Stay well, everyone.
