As the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to evolve, the government is attempting in many ways to assist Americans who are struggling. One of the ways that are trying to help is by funding funerals for those who died from the virus.

From The Epoch Times. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) said on Tuesday that its funeral assistance program has reimbursed more than $2 billion in funeral costs for more than 300,000 families of COVID-19 victims….

FEMA said that individuals who applied for the funeral assistance program would be required to present an official death certificate indicating a COVID-19-attributed death, documents showing funeral costs, and proof of funds received from other sources specially used toward funeral costs, such as burial or funeral insurance, financial assistance received from voluntary agencies, government agencies, or others….

FEMA on Tuesday announced that it has launched a new paid ad campaign in California, New York, Pennsylvania and Texas targeted at areas with large rates of COVID-19 deaths but lower rates of reimbursement requests to help connect people to available assistance. The agency is also reaching out to community groups and local media outlets to help publicize the program….

Eligible applicants may qualify for up to $9,000 for each deceased individual per application, with a maximum of $35,000 for families who may have multiple funeral expenses due to COVID-19, the agency said.

FEMA is not accepting online applications for the reimbursement program. People eligible are directed to call the agency’s helpline 844-684-6333 where they will be prompted to submit the required documentation.

Additionally, the Senate is currently working to repeal the COVID-19 mask mandate on public transportation. With bipartisan support, the only hurdle left is Biden himself.

From Just the News. The Senate voted Tuesday to repeal the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s COVID-19 mandate requiring masks on public transportation, including airplanes.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., introduced the resolution that received bipartisan support with a 57 to 40 vote….

The resolution still faces significant challenges to become law. It did not receive enough votes to override the veto that President Joe Biden has threatened to do. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., may not even allow the House to vote on the measure….

“As the entire world is learning to live with COVID, the federal government still uses fear mongering to stubbornly perpetuate its mandates, rather than giving clear-eyed, rational advice on how to best protect yourself from illness,” Paul said. “That is why, I forced this vote, and I applaud the Senate for rejecting this nonsense.”

Lord, we lift up the loved ones of millions of those lost to Covid and with Covid. We pray healing for their wounded hearts and that they may feel Your love and compassion along with that of Christians throughout the world. We thank You for those in the medical field and other essential front line employees who worked throughout lock downs with no extra time off. We pray for those providing therapeutic meds to the ill which kept them out of the hospitals. We pray for the elected officials and civilians diligently working to get to the truth and disperse it to the public.

Most of all, Father, we thank You for Your covering over us, for our salvation, our faith, Your love and Your all.

In Christ name I pray,

Thank you, Father, that more Democrats are starting to see the failure of restrictions of forcing masks. Lord in Jesus name let you Holy Spirit minister to the others who have yet to see the truth and not be blinded by politics. In Jesus name pray.
