White House Unveils Plan to Move America to a New Stage of the COVID Pandemic

The National COVID-19 Preparedness Plan focuses on treatments

The White House on Wednesday unveiled a plan to move the nation to a new stage of the pandemic where COVID-19 "does not disrupt our daily lives," while also preparing the nation for any new variants that may emerge.

The National COVID-19 Preparedness Plan, which will require additional funding from Congress, is focused on spending on treatments for COVID-19, preparing for new variants, keeping schools and businesses open and continuing the effort to vaccinate the nation and the world.

"Vaccines, treatments, tests, masks -- these tools are how we continue to protect people and enable us to move forward safely and get back to our more normal routines. Going out to eat at a restaurant, taking that trip that's been long delayed, arranging a play date for your kids, attending a sports game, a movie or a concert again," White House COVID-19 response coordinator Jeff Zients told reporters at a White House briefing.
