HHS has announced that it has begun distributing $24.5 billion as part of Phase 3 of the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund, up from the $20 billion originally planned. Applicants did not receive Phase 3 funding if they did not experience any change in revenues or net expenses attributable to COVID-19 or if they already received funds from earlier distributions that equal or exceed reimbursement of 88 percent of reported losses.

All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link https://www.cdc.gov/publichealthgateway/healthdirectories/index.html for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
